Erickson caught eight of 14 targets for 137 yards and lost two yards on two carries in Sunday's 27-17 loss to Jacksonville.
Erickson had six catches for 110 yards before any other Bengal caught a single pass, and his 14 targets ultimately tied with Tyler Boyd for the team lead. His two rushing attempts yielded wildly different results, as one resulted in a nine-yard gain and the other lost 11. Considering Erickson hadn't previously topped 50 receiving yards in a game this season, his involvement in the offense is likely to drop precipitously against the Rams in Week 8.
Erickson caught four of six targets for 47 receiving yards during Sunday's 23-17 defeat to the Ravens.
A special-teams ace by trade, Erickson has seen an uptick in his offensive involvement lately with injuries to A.J. Green (ankle) and John Ross (shoulder). Against Baltimore, Erickson garnered six-plus targets for just the third time in Cincinnati's past 36 regular-season games, while his 47 yards were his most since Week 17 of last year. Up next, he and the Bengals receiving corps will be going up against a Jaguars defense that allowed only Michael Thomas to exceed 40 receiving yards Sunday.
Erickson (concussion) is not listed on Friday's injury report, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Erickson has managed to clear the league's concussion protocol in time to suit up Sunday versus Baltimore. He's primed to play a regular role in Cincinnati's receiving corps behind Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate.
Erickson (concussion) put in a full practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
While Erickson's upgrade from limited participation Wednesday to a full showing one day later amounts to a step forward, he'll still need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before being removed from the concussion protocol. If that happens before Sunday's game in Baltimore, Erickson should reclaim a regular spot in three-receiver sets alongside Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate.
Erickson remains in the NFL's concussion protocol as of Wednesday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
On the plus side, coach Zac Taylor relayed that Erickson is making progress, but the receiver's status for Sunday's game against the Ravens is unclear at this stage. With A.J. Green (ankle) still out and John Ross (shoulder) on injured reserve, Erickson -- if available -- would be in line for his share of snaps in Week 6 alongside starters Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate.
