A.J. Green (toe) is officially listed as probable for Week 3 against the Titans.
Green was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice after experiencing no setbacks from Thursday's limited session. He's already said that he plans to play Sunday. We conservatively have Green as our No. 10 receiver for Week 3, but he gets a boost with Titans top CB Jason McCourty dinged up. Sep 19 - 2:06 PM

A.J. Green (toe) said he "feels good" and plans to play Sunday against the Titans.

After returning to practice Thursday, Green said Friday morning that there's no soreness in his toe, and if he feels like this on Sunday, he's going to be out there. We still need to keep a close eye on Green up through Sunday morning. For now, he can be penciled into lineups as a low-end WR1. There's a heightened chance for aggravation. Green's not a recommended FanDuel play.

A.J. Green (foot) returned to Bengals practice Thursday.

He was officially "limited." It puts Green on track to play in Sunday's game against the Titans, but how he bounces back on Friday will be key. His status cannot be taken for granted. Even if Green does suit up, he'll be more of a low-end WR1 than his usual top-three self. There's a chance he'll draw much-fewer targets than usual as a decoy.

Coach Marvin Lewis said he expects A.J. Green (toe) to play in Sunday's game against the Titans.

Green was less optimistic than his head coach on Wednesday, saying he "doesn't know at this point" if he'll be able to suit up. Note that the Bengals have a bye in Week 4. "It's just getting the range of motion back on that big toe," said Green. "That's the biggest thing, because I'm always on that. I feel good. I still have some treatment to do, but it's getting better." The Pro Bowl wideout is expected to test the toe out during Thursday's practice. If he ends up as a game-time Sunday, we'll know his official status by noon ET.

A.J. Green (toe) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Green says he'll try to practice Thursday. He hopes to play this week against the Titans, but "doesn't know at this point." Green originally hurt the toe in the first quarter of the season opener and aggravated it early in Week 2. Green will likely be a game-time decision. His status will be updated again Thursday.

Speaking Monday, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said A.J. Green's toe/foot issue is "not a long-term injury."

Lewis didn't elaborate on Green's Week 3 status. The Bengals' official website reported Sunday evening the "indications" are that Green will return following the team's Week 4 bye. We wouldn't rule him out for Week 3 just yet, however. At the latest, Green's status will be updated when the Bengals return to practice on Wednesday.

The Bengals' official website says "indications" are that A.J. Green (toe/foot) will be able to return after the Week 4 bye.

The initial testing on Green's foot was negative for broken bones and he's been diagnosed with turf toe -- also known as a ligament strain. He wasn't spotted on crutches and said he hopes to play vs. the Titans in Week 3, but that doesn't seem very realistic at this point. If Green sits out that game, he'll get another two weeks of rest before the Bengals play at New England in Week 5. Mohamed Sanu's stock is on the rise.

According to PFT, the updated diagnosis on A.J. Green is a ligament strain in his foot -- not turf toe.

It sounds like there's some confusion as to what's going on with Green. Either way, it sounds like a visit to foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte could end up being in the cards. Whether Green is dealing with a ligament strain or turf toe, his Week 2 status is very much in doubt.

A.J. Green has been diagnosed with turf toe.

Green left Sunday's win over the Falcons in the first quarter and was quickly ruled out for the day. It's an aggravation of the issue he was battling during the week. Green will head for more testing to determine how long he'll be sidelined.
Sep 14 - 4:39 PM

A.J. Green was forced from Cincinnati's Week 2 game against the Falcons with a toe injury, and will not return.

It's a massive blow, as Mohamed Sanu is now the Bengals' "No. 1 receiver." However, Sanu threw a 50-yard completion soon after Green's departure. The Bengals are calling Green's injury an aggravation of the "foot" injury that limited him in practice this week. It's possible he's dealing with a case of turf toe. He should be considered highly questionable for Week 3 until further notice.

A.J. Green was forced from Cincinnati's Week 2 game against the Falcons with a toe injury, and is questionable to return.

Green headed to the locker room midway through the first quarter. It's apparently the same ailment that landed him on the injury report this week, though he was listed with a foot issue. Either way, it looks like he's truly questionable to return. Dane Sanzenbacher has been in the game opposite Mohamed Sanu.
Sep 14 - 1:26 PM

A.J. Green (foot) is officially active for Week 2 against the Falcons.

NFL.com's Jeff Darlington has reported that Green won't be on a "pitch count." Fire him up as a top-three option. Inactive for the Bengals are RB Rex Burkhead, LB Sean Porter, C T.J. Johnson, OT Tanner Hawkinson, WR Marvin Jones and DE Will Clarke.
Sep 14 - 11:31 AM

A source tells NFL Network that A.J. Green (foot) will not be on a pitch count in Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Green skipped practice on Thursday to rest this minor foot injury, but it's not a real concern. He got back in practice Friday and is a full-go for this tasty matchup against a Falcons team primed for a letdown.
Sep 14 - 10:54 AM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis confirmed Friday that A.J. Green (probable, foot) will be "good to go" in Week 2.

He'll take on a Falcons defense that gave up big Week 1 stat lines to Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston. Green is an every-week top-five WR1 play.
Sep 12 - 1:22 PM

A.J. Green (foot) returned to practice Friday.

Green was limited on Wednesday before sitting out on Thursday. The Bengals are likely just playing it safe with their star wideout, giving him the Calvin Johnson treatment. Green is our No. 3 receiver for Week 2 in a potential shootout.
