C.J. Uzomah didn’t need any encouragement when a podcast host suggested he would take a Skyline Chili bath if the Cincinnati Bengals win the Super Bowl. Uzomah jumped right in.

“Easy, 100 percent,” he said. “I’m wearing swim trunks, but you put it in a swimming pool and I’ll dive in there and I’ll eat my way out.”

Uzomah is no stranger to getting a reaction out of Bengals fans, as he ripped his left knee brace off on stage during the Bengals pep rally on Monday.

Zac Taylor told reporters, including the Associated Press, that Uzomah was expected to work at practice on Thursday with the Bengals taking advantage of having 3 days of work left to see where the veteran is in his recovery. Uzomah played only 9 snaps in the AFC championship game before he suffered the knee injury. He caught 49 passes for 493 yards and 5 touchdowns in the best season of his career, and he has 13 catches for 135 yards this postseason.

“Again, optimistic with where he’s at,” Taylor said. “Team has handled it really well. We try to keep our scheduling as consistent as possible. And you know, so we’re midway through our first day here, and our guys have handled it really well.”
