Ja’Marr Chase was picked by the Cincinnati Bengals with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, reuniting with Joe Burrow, his LSU quarterback.

During the Bengals’ most recent preseason game, Chase didn’t look good, dropping 3 passes that were right on target.

No worries, right? It’s still early and, after all, Burrow wasn’t playing in the preseason game as he continues to rehab a knee injury.

Well, concerns are getting higher in Cincinnati, as Chase’s case of the drops continued during Sunday’s practice. Bengals reporter Kelsey Conway tweeted that Chase dropped 2 passes from Burrow that hit him in the hands:

Here’s one of those drops, which led to an interception for the Bengals’ defense during red-zone work:

Chase didn’t play during 2020, so it might take him a bit of time to get back up to game speed. Still, you can’t blame Bengals fans for getting a bit antsy as their highly drafted receiver continues to deal with a seeming lack of confidence as Week 1 approaches.
