Chiefs defender takes shot at Tee Higgins ahead of Week 13 matchup
One Kansas City Chiefs player appears to be poking the bengal ahead of Sunday’s showdown.
Chiefs safety Justin Reid spoke with reporters on Wednesday and addressed his team’s coming matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Reid took a shot at Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins, pretending he did not know Higgins and referring to Higgins as “Higbee” instead. Then Reid said that Higgins was “a talented receiver” but “more of a finesse type of guy” and “not the best blocker.” Finally Reid declared that “I’m gonna lock [Higgins] down.”

It seems pretty obvious that Reid knows exactly who Higgins is, especially on the Wednesday of game week. But Reid and the rest of the Kansas City secondary will have their hands full between Higgins, who has over 1,900 yards receiving in the last two seasons combined, and Pro Bowl teammate Ja’Marr Chase, who is expected to return from injury on Sunday.
Still, the Chiefs are clearly not backing down in what will be their first meeting against the Bengals since losing to them in last year’s AFC title game. Reid especially loves a good challenge against a top wideout.
