The Cincinnati Bengals are expected to play wide receiver Jerome Simpson Week 3 when they take on the San Francisco 49ers, ESPN is reporting.

Simpson was detained earlier this week when police uncovered 8.5 pounds of marijuana in Simpson’s Kentucky home.

This is a big boost for the Bengals offense that has been desperate for good news after a string of problems since their loss to the Denver Broncos last week.

Expect Simpson to have a big game after what appeared to be his breakout performance in Week 2, catching four passes for 136 yards. 

Andre Caldwell will likely see increased action this week as well since he should be starting in the slot receiver spot after Jordan Shipley suffered a torn ACL, ending his 2011 season.

Game time is 1 pm ET and Bleacher Report will be here with a live blog for anyone who is affected by the local blackout.
