Opportunity knocks in return
Mims should see an expanded role in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Joey Chandler of NJ Advance Media reports.
Mims' return from the reserve/COVID-19 list coincided with Keelan Cole's placement on the list, and Corey Davis (groin) is a game-time decision. Even if Davis suit up, he's not expected to play his usual complement of snaps, creating an opportunity for Mims to make some noise in his return. The 2020 second-round pick's career is off to an underwhelming start, but Mims could begin to turn the narrative around by making the most of this opportunity.
