Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) said he feels good Friday, Sept. 19, and is ready to play in Week 3.
Huddle Up: An in-game re-aggravation is certainly at risk again here, but as one of fantasy's top WRs, Green's clearly a must-start if he's playing.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) is likely to play in Week 3, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.
Huddle Up: The stud wideout reportedly returned to practice Thursday, and it's sounding like he might try and give it a go Sunday against the Titans. However, that's a mixed bag for fantasy owners as there's the risk the WR could always re-aggravate the injury and depart at any time -- a la Week 2 -- and leave his owners short in the fantasy points department.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) sat out practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, but will try to practice Thursday, Sept. 18. He said he hopes to be able to play Week 3. He said his injury is like turf toe but not as bad. He is not worried about the injury lingering.
Huddle Up: Green's fantasy owners are certainly banking on the WR being right as the injury from last week did flare up early in the game last Sunday and resulted in a zero in the fantasy-points column. Definitely monitor how things go Thursday and Friday.

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) underwent an MRI on his injury, which came back negative. If he is not able to play Week 3, he should be ready after the team's Week 4 bye.
Huddle Up: Reason says the looming bye likely will lead to the Bengals giving the standout WR an extra week of rest and recovery, but see what the tone coming out of Cincy is during the week.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) suffered a turf toe injury in the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons, a league source said Sunday, Sept. 14. He left early and was unable to return. It is uncertain how much time he will miss.
Huddle Up: Green's status will be updated later in the week but there's a chance he could be out against Tennessee, so owners need to be prepared with other options.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) was back at practice Friday, Sept. 12, after being held out as a precaution Thursday, Sept. 11. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green will play in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Have no real concerns about Green who has a juicy matchup against an Atlanta pass defense that surrendered 333 passing yards to the Saints in Week 1.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) is not taking part in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: This would seem to be a step back for Green who was limited Wednesday, but it could also be a mid-week precautionary measure as well. If he's out again Friday, though, then we might have a situation.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green was texted by head coach Marvin Lewis over the weekend to have Green's agent initiate contract extension talks.
Huddle Up: The Bengals just locked up Andy Dalton; makes sense to lock up his top target as well.

The Cincinnati Bengals will exercise WR A.J. Green's option for 2015.
Huddle Up: Here's your no-brainer news of the offseason as Cincy will re-up with Green, who ranks third in receiving yards (3,833) over the past three NFL seasons.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green caught 3 passes for 34 yards Sunday, Jan. 5 in a 27-10 wild-card playoff loss to the San Diego Chargers.
Huddle Up: Chalk it up as a puzzling off-day for Green, who was double-teamed most of the game and was targeted 9 times. but never seemed to be a vital part of the Cincy game plan and finished well behind leading WR Marvin Jones (8-130). Green remains one of the game's elite WRs, but there are going to be games like this, especially as long as the streaky Andy Dalton is quarterbacking the Bengals.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: The knee issue has cropped up off and on for Green all season, but it hasn't slowed the Pro Bowl wideout, who caught 31 passes for 406 yards and 5 TDs over Cincy's last 5 games.

New York Jets CB Antonio Cromartie will likely have the task of covering Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green in Week 8. 'Put his hands on him and pray,' said Jets defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman. Green has 619 yards, 43 catches and five touchdowns through seven weeks. Last week against the New England Patriots, Cromartie allowed only one catch for 25 yards, but that came after three weeks where opposing quarterbacks had a rating over 100 against him.
Huddle Up: After a lull in Weeks 2-5 in which he never topped 61 receiving yards, Green has come on strong over the past 2 games with a combined 12 catches for 258 yards and 2 TDs and remains a must-start no matter who he's facing.
