Terrell Owens is on injured reserve with a knee injury and will be an unrestricted free agent. Chad Ochocinco is battling an ankle injury that could require offseason surgery, and the Bengals have to decide whether to pick up a $6 million contract option on him for 2011. Yes, the Bengals' plans at wide receiver are an offseason story line to watch. Third-year pro Andre Caldwell, who has stepped in for Owens, is vying for a bigger role in the offense in 2011 after playing sparingly for most of this season. Jerome Simpson, like Caldwell a 2008 draft pick, is working to prove he can be part of the team's plans for next season after failing to earn much playing time in his first three seasons. Speaking on "The T.Ocho Show" this week, Ochocinco said he wasn't sure if he would be back next season and said he expected "significant" changes to the Bengals in the offseason.
