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.
Wed, Dec 23, 2015 12:35:00 PM

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.
Sat, Dec 19, 2015 03:04:00 PM

A.J. Green caught 6-of-9 targets for 132 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Steelers.

Green was the entire offense for the Bengals after Andy Dalton (thumb) and Tyler Eifert (concussion) both got hurt on the opening drive and never came back into the game. A.J. McCarron leaned pretty heavily on Green, who has always done damage to the Steelers. For his first NFL touchdown pass, McCarron hit a streaking Green for a 66-yard score, who carved up CB Antwon Blake on the play and sent him to the bench. Green will be an elite WR1 next week against the 49ers at home.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:47:00 PM

A.J. Green secured 5-of-6 targets for 128 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 13 win over the Browns.

On a day Andy Dalton needed just 14 completions for the Bengals to spank Cleveland, Green dominated Browns RCB Tramon Williams en route to big play after big play. He nearly scored a second touchdown, but the TD was reversed by replay, and Jeremy Hill powered in from a half-yard out on the very next snap. Green has a gorgeous matchup in Week 14 against a weak Steelers pass defense.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 04:04:00 PM

A.J. Green reeled in six of eight targets for 61 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' Week 12 win over the Rams.

Green’s first touchdown of the day was one of the easiest you’ll ever see. Janoris Jenkins abandoned his assignment, leaving Green wide open for a 10-yard score. Green’s second touchdown had a much higher degree of difficulty but he hauled it in nonetheless. Rather than going deep, Green spent a good chunk of his afternoon in the slot. Five of his catches came in the first half as the Bengals looked to kill clock after halftime. Green should be a top-10 play against the Browns in Week 13.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 04:55:00 PM

A.J. Green caught 4-of-12 targets for 79 yards in Sunday night's Week 11 loss to the Cardinals.

Green was shadowed by Patrick Peterson most of the night, but beat Jerraud Powers on a 42-yard catch that set up the Bengals’ first touchdown. He’s managed only 146 yards on 19 targets over the last two games. Green played through an injury late, but should be fine. He’ll have another difficult matchup against the Rams in Week 12.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 12:47:00 AM

A.J. Green caught 5-of-7 targets for 67 yards in the Bengals' Week 10 loss to the Texans on Monday night.

Green went nearly three full quarters without a catch in this one after reeling in three early passes and then not catching another ball until there was 2:56 left in the fourth quarter. His fifth and final grab of the night proved costly, as Green caught a 4th-and-6 pass at the Texans' 23-yard line with 40 seconds left in the game and the Bengals trailing by four. At the end of the play, a Texans' defensive back came in and forced a fumble as Green was going to ground, ending the game. Green has now been held under 100 yards without a touchdown in five of the Bengals' last six games. He's still a locked-in WR1, but it'd be nice to see him have an A.J. Green-type game soon. He'll square off with Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals in Week 11 on the road.
