A.J. Green hauled in 2-of-8 targets for 38 yards Week 2 against the Steelers.
Both of his catches came in the first half, and he was only targeted twice after the break despite Andy Dalton throwing 27 times in the second half. Green did draw a long defensive pass interference in the third quarter, but he was a non-factor otherwise. With the Broncos next up on the schedule, the road will not get any easier for Green next week. Sep 18 - 5:07 PM

A.J. Green secured 12-of-13 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 1 win over the Jets.

We believe he racked up every single catch against Darrelle Revis, who shadowed Green all game including when he motioned into the slot. Green was essentially the Bengals' entire offense in this one, piling up receptions on bubble screens in addition to toasting Revis for a 54-yard touchdown deep down the middle. So long as he stays healthy, Green is headed for a career year on a team that needs him more than ever. He has an even more favorable matchup in Week 2 at Pittsburgh.

A.J. Green said he "banged knees" with Jaguars CB Davon House in Sunday night's preseason game.

"I'm fine now," he added. The injury originally looked like an ankle tweak, but it sounds like Green escaped with a knee bruise. The Bengals are counting on Green as much as ever this season after losing Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu to free agency, and Tyler Eifert (ankle) until Week 4 at the soonest.

A.J. Green limped off the field in the first quarter of the Bengals' third preseason game with a knee injury, but the team says the issue is not serious.

Green appeared to suffer the injury when he planted his right leg along the sideline. He did run a route after the injury, but he limped to the sidelines after the play. The training staff reportedly did not find any issues when testing the stability of the knee, and Green walked it off on the sideline. Even though he appears to have escaped without a serious injury, Green's night is done.

A.J. Green's first child is due in "about a month."

Green said Thursday that he "will miss a game if it comes to that," and there's "no way" he would miss the birth of his first born. This is a respectable stance from Green, but also one that could have fantasy implications. It sounds like the child's due date is near the Bengals' Week 3 game against Denver.
Aug 25 - 6:31 PM

ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey wrote A.J. Green and Andy Dalton were "more in sync this spring than they have been during any offseason workout of their career."

Two of the Bengals' most valuable players performing well in non-contact work isn't much of a story, but it's worth noting because Dalton and Green may have to do more individual heavy lifting this year. Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu are gone, and Tyler Eifert (ankle) is not considered likely to be ready for Week 1. If Green stays healthy, he should reset his career high in targets.
Jul 20 - 9:58 PM

A.J. Green said the Bengals offense will go as far as he and Andy Dalton take it.

"We don’t need no coaches or anybody to push us," Green continued. "We know what we have to do to get this offense to go. We know the offense run through us." Especially with Tyler Eifert (ankle) questionable for the start of the season, Green will be the unquestioned focal point of the passing game. He has a reasonable chance to set a new career-high in targets.
May 28 - 8:59 AM

A.J. Green caught 5-of-8 targets for 71 yards and a score in the Bengals' Wild Card loss to the Steelers.

Green was non-existent for much of the first three quarters, but the star receiver made his presence felt late. After setting up the Bengals' first touchdown by drawing a long defensive pass interference penalty early in the fourth, Green put Cincinnati ahead with a 25-yard touchdown grab with under two minutes left. It was Green's first post-season touchdown. The Bengals ended up losing the lead in heartbreaking fashion, but Green did his part to secure the win. Despite an up-and-down season, Green scored a touchdown in six of his final seven games and finished the regular season as a top-eight receiver. With Andy Dalton back healthy, Green will remain a solid WR1 next year.
Jan 10 - 1:17 AM

A.J. Green caught 4-of-5 targets for 34 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 17 win over the Ravens.

His five targets were tied with Marvin Jones for the team-lead on a day the Bengals more or less used as a tune-up for Wild Card weekend. On his five-yard touchdown, the bigger Green just jumped over the top of CB Shareece Wright on a fade. At the end of the regular season, Green has an 86-1,297-10 receiving line. Green had several slow weeks, but padded them with monster ones. He didn't miss a single game and will be an elite play next week against the Steelers. Green has always played well against Pittsburgh.
Jan 4 - 12:00 AM

A.J. Green caught 5-of-9 targets for 57 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 16 loss to the Broncos on Monday night.

Green dominated the opening possession, making a trio of highlight-reel grabs and finished it off with a five-yard touchdown catch on a jump-ball fade over the top of CB Aqib Talib. He displayed terrific field awareness, getting both feet in bounds on a couple of catches. Green caught all five of his passes in the first half. He was targeted three times after the break, and twice on a couple of deep balls, but CB Chris Harris was able to disrupt one, and Green quit on his route on another. Green will have a tasty date with the Ravens in Week 17.

The Cincinnati Enquirer believes A.J. Green is "on track to play" Monday night against the Broncos.

Green bruised his back in last Saturday's walkthrough ahead of the Week 15 game against the 49ers. He was downgraded to questionable ahead of Sunday's game, but ultimately played before catching just 1-of-3 targets for 37 yards. Green left the game in the third quarter and never returned. Coach Marvin Lewis admitted the plan was to get Green out of the game as soon as they could. He should be ready for Monday in an extremely tough matchup.

A.J. Green left Sunday's game in the third quarter.

He could be seen sitting on the sidelines with the Bengals' offense on the field. It's unclear if Green aggravated his back injury, or if he's simply resting with Cincinnati up 24-0 on a non-competitive 49ers team. Before leaving, Green had one catch for 37 yards on three targets.

A.J. Green started the Bengals' Week 15 game at San Francisco.

It's notable because Green was downgraded from probable to questionable just before the game, after suffering a back injury in Saturday's walkthrough practice. Green's effectiveness against the 49ers remains to be seen.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 04:32:00 PM

A.J. Green is questionable for the Bengals' Week 15 game against the 49ers due to a back injury.

Green is believed to have suffered the injury in Saturday's walkthrough. He was added to the injury report after the session, but listed as probable.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 04:25:00 PM

A.J. Green (back) is probable for Week 15 against the 49ers.

Green was a late addition to the injury report, but his back injury should be a non-issue. Rotoworld ranks Green as the No. 8 receiver for Week 15.
