Date:

A.J. Green's missed practice on Thursday was due to an illness.

He'll be back on Friday, and is in no danger of missing Monday's game against the Broncos.
Dec 18 - 3:25 PM

A.J. Green was held out of Thursday's practice.

Per Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson, the "thinking is" that Green is under the weather. Whatever it is, we're not in any way concerned about his Week 16 availability. Green's status will be updated later Thursday afternoon.
Dec 18 - 1:28 PM

A.J. Green caught 5-of-11 targets for 49 yards in the Bengals' Week 15 rout of the Browns.

The quiet day came despite the fact that shutdown Browns CB Joe Haden missed over half the game with a shoulder injury. Green did early work on Haden, and could have had a long touchdown if not for a poorly-thrown ball from Andy Dalton. Dalton was terrible all afternoon, limiting Green's upside on a day where the Bengals ran it down Cleveland's throat. Green will be a low-end WR1 against the Broncos in the fantasy finals.
Dec 14 - 5:21 PM

A.J. Green caught 11 passes for 224 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's 42-21 Week 14 loss

The Steelers chose to use Ike Taylor on Green and William Gay on Mohamed Sanu/Brandon Tate. They regretted it. Green completely and predictably lit Taylor on fire, the highlight being a 81-yard bomb that saw Ike trailing the play by five yards with his tongue wagging. Clearly over the toe injury that crippled the middle part of his season, Green has piled up 33 catches, three touchdowns and three 100-yard games over the last four weeks. Unfortunately, he has a date with Joe Haden in Cleveland Week 15.
Dec 7 - 4:28 PM

A.J. Green (thigh) is listed as probable for Week 14.

Green has a mouth-watering matchup with Steelers CB Ike Taylor.
Dec 5 - 1:37 PM

A.J. Green (thigh) remained "limited" on Thursday.

The Bengals are just managing their superstar wideout's reps. He has an appetizing Week 14 matchup in the Steelers' sub-par cornerback corps.
Dec 4 - 3:20 PM

A.J. Green (thigh) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Green should be fine for Week 14 against the Steelers. He'll be a top-end WR1 play against a Steelers secondary that has been unable to contain anyone on the outside. Green is going to eat Ike Taylor for lunch on Sunday.
Dec 3 - 3:44 PM

A.J. Green secured 4-of-8 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 13 win over the Bucs.

Green was somewhat quiet throughout this game, but scored a 13-yard touchdown in the third quarter on a double fade with Brandon Tate. The TD proved the game winner in Cincinnati's 14-13 victory. Green will remain a high-end WR1 when the Bengals take on the Steelers in Week 14.
Nov 30 - 5:46 PM

A.J. Green caught 12 balls for 121 yards in the Bengals' Week 12 win over the Texans.

The Texans did Green a favor by keeping top CB Johnathan Joseph away from his side, and letting Green go to work on second-year UDFA A.J. Bouye. Bouye got such a good whipping that DC Romeo Crennel benched him for Darryl Morris early in the second half. AJG went on to whip Morris repeatedly for first-down catches. Green now has four career games of double-digit receptions, and his dozen on Sunday were a single-game career high. With stat lines of 6-127-1 and 12-121 over his last two games, Green will be a top-shelf fantasy WR1 when the Bengals take on the Buccaneers next.
Nov 23 - 4:18 PM

A.J. Green said practicing in full ahead of Sunday's win at New Orleans made him feel more comfortable.

In his first two games off a toe injury, Green was limited in practice. But he took "every rep" last week and got another boost when Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee) was hobbled. The result was a 6-127-1 line, reestablishing Green as what we all know he is -- one of the game's premier wideouts. Now healthy, he's a good bet to feast on the Texans in Week 12.

A.J. Green caught 6-of-8 targets for 127 yards and a touchdown in Cincinnati's Week 11 win over the Saints.

Green was finally "back," routinely making big catches in tight spaces and on third down. He displayed some seriously fancy footwork on his 24-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. Green drew early shadow coverage from Keenan Lewis, but ended up devouring undrafted rookie CB Brian Dixon. Green has a nice Week 12 matchup in a Texans defense that's struggled to contain elite receivers this season.
Nov 16 - 4:18 PM

A.J. Green caught 3-of-10 targets for just 23 yards in Cincinnati's Week 10 loss to the Browns.

Green never had a prayer this evening. When he wasn't being overthrown by a comically bad Andy Dalton, he was getting swallowed up by nemesis Joe Haden. He also committed two drops. It was an ugly effort. If there's good news, it's that Green looked 100 percent healthy just four days after returning from his toe injury in Week 9. He should bounce back as a WR1 in Week 11 against the Saints.
Nov 6 - 11:57 PM

A.J. Green (toe) hinted he'll be more active in Week 10 against the Browns.

Green played on 40-of-69 snaps in the win over the Jaguars, catching three passes for 44 yards with a touchdown. He also lined up offsides on a 12-yard score. The good news is Green came out of the game without setbacks. "I felt a little rusty but everybody said I looked good," he said. "I know my routes and I felt I was just a little bit off. I'll be practicing much more this week." Lock and load Green as a strong WR1 for Thursday night.

A.J. Green caught three passes for 44 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 9 win over the Jaguars.

Making his return from a toe injury, Green got the start and played a good majority of the snaps, even though he noticeably took a couple series off. Green could have had an additional 12-yard score, but lined up offsides on the play. As long as he didn't suffer any setbacks, Green will be back as an elite WR1 against Joe Haden and the Browns on Thursday night in Week 10.
