Ja’Marr Chase And Justin Reid Exchange Twitter Jabs Ahead Of Chiefs-Bengals Game On Sunday

The Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals will meet in a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game that was won by the Bengals but the war of words has already begun between safety Justin Reid and wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase.

The two stars exchanged Twitter jabs on Wednesday after comments made by Reid about shutting down the Bengals’ pass-catchers.

Reid clarified his statement on Twitter, saying he wasn’t talking bout Tee Higgins, rather meant to say Bengals TE Hayden Hurst, who he briefly confused with Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee. The mixup didn’t stop Reid from doubling down, tweeting, “Nonetheless, any and everybody still getting locked up.”

Chase caught wind of Reid’s statement and responded by urging him to let put money on it. Reid balked at the wager and told Chase he was “welcome for the extra motivation” before ending the back-and-forth with an ominous, “see you Sunday, champ.”

Chase is expected to play on Sunday for the first time since Oct. 23. He’s been out due to a hip injury, but all signs point to him playing against the Chiefs. 

“I don’t think he’s watching film at all,” Chase told the media. “I don’t think he knows his personnel on whoever he’s trying to check, if he’s even checking anybody. He needs to go back and watch the film, look at his personnel and look at what he wants to know.”

I can’t wait for Sunday!
