A.J. Green (biceps) is listed as probable for Week 17.

He practiced fully on Friday and will be out there against Pittsburgh.
Dec 26 - 2:09 PM

Tyler Eifert recently underwent shoulder surgery.

He's done for the season. Eifert hasn't played since dislocating his elbow in Week 1. He initially hurt the shoulder in training camp. Eifert is simply getting cleaned up in an effort to be fully healthy for the offseason. Jermaine Gresham will continue to handle tight-end duties through the playoffs for the Bengals.

A.J. Green (arm) returned to Bengals practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It confirms that Green is on track to suit up for Sunday evening's AFC North title game. Green will likely be listed as "questionable" on Friday's injury report, but all signs point toward him playing against the Steelers.

A.J. Green (arm) is not practicing Wednesday.

No surprise. Green will likely miss most of the practice week, but the Bengals have expressed optimism regarding Green's ability to play Week 17 vs. Pittsburgh.
Dec 24 - 1:17 PM's Albert Breer reports the Bengals are optimistic that A.J. Green (bruised biceps) will be ready for Week 17.

Coach Marvin Lewis said as much in a Tuesday interview with ESPN. Green will undoubtedly miss practice time, but he's looking better than 50-50 to suit up for Sunday's AFC North title game against the Steelers.
Dec 23 - 5:13 PM

A.J. Green (arm) has avoided structural damage, and was dealing with only "swelling" on Tuesday.

Appearing on ESPN's NFL Insiders, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said Green had already regained his strength by last evening. Green took a first-quarter hit against the Broncos, eventually checking out for the night in the third. It sounds like Green will suit up for Sunday's AFC North title game against the Steelers, but his status can't be taken for granted.
Dec 23 - 4:10 PM

Following Monday night's win over the Broncos, A.J. Green (arm) said he expects to play in Week 17.

Green sustained the injury in the first quarter when a high throw from Andy Dalton left him vulnerable to a hit from T.J. Ward. Green tried to play through it, but was in visible pain and ended up leaving the game for good in the third quarter. Although X-rays were negative, the pain of the bruise was too much. The playoff bound Bengals still have seeding to play for against the Steelers in Week 17.
Dec 23 - 8:48 AM

Mohamed Sanu caught just one pass for 16 yards in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Broncos.

He was targeted just two times, even with A.J. Green playing only about 10 snaps due to an early-game arm injury. Sanu was draped by the Broncos' impressive cornerback trio, while Jermaine Gresham got loose for a 9-62-1 line on 11 targets in the middle of the field. The Bengals get the Steelers in Week 17.
Dec 23 - 12:37 AM

Jermaine Gresham caught nine passes for 62 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Broncos.

With A.J. Green hurting his arm on the fourth offensive play and missing much of the night, Gresham saw a team-high 11 targets and led the Bengals in receiving. His touchdown couldn't have been any easier. Andy Dalton rolled out on play-action and found a wide-open Gresham in the back of the end zone. Gresham has played surprisingly well this season. The Bengals get the Steelers in Week 17.
Dec 23 - 12:26 AM

Giovani Bernard rushed for 36 yards on eight carries in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Broncos, adding five catches for 45 yards and one touchdown.

The past two weeks, Bernard has been doing more with less. And that's how it was in 2013. The Bengals realized Bernard isn't a workhorse back, and he's taken a side seat next to 1A Jeremy Hill. Hill out-touched Bernard 22-13, but both did work with their looks. Bernard looked like his rookie self on his 22-yard touchdown, catching the ball at the line of scrimmage and shedding a tackle before making another defender miss on his way to the end zone. The past two weeks, he's managed 184 total yards on 31 touches. Bernard and Hill are going to have to carry the Bengals in the playoffs. They'll wrap up Week 17 against the Steelers.
Dec 23 - 12:16 AM

Andy Dalton completed 17-of-26 passes for 146 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Broncos.

Dalton's primetime nightmares took a night off on Monday. By no means did Dalton fill up the box score, but he managed to limit turnovers after tossing a pick-six to Aqib Talib on his second pass of the game. All OC Hue Jackson had to do was dial up handoffs from Dalton to Jeremy Hill. Dalton finished off the possessions by tossing two east touchdowns. The first went to a wide-open Jermaine Gresham from two yards out, while the second was a simple dumpoff to Gio Bernard who made two defenders miss on the way to the end zone. The Bengals face the Steelers in Week 17.
Dec 23 - 12:06 AM

Jeremy Hill rushed for 147 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries in the Bengals' 37-28, Week 16 win over the Broncos on Monday night.

Hill was the star of the show on offense, while the Cincinnati defense carried the Bengals to victory by intercepting Peyton Manning four times. Hill got another start in the Bengals' backfield and took his third carry to the house for an 85-yard touchdown. It was one of the more impressive runs of the season. Hill showed amazing stop-start ability on the scamper, slowing down for blocks and immediately turning on the jets. Another great run was a simple two-yard pickup on 4th-and-1 where he was initially stopped behind the line but powered through to move the sticks. The Bengals could make a run if they lean on Hill and the defense plays like it did on Monday. They'll wrap up the regular season against Pittsburgh.
Dec 22 - 11:53 PM

A.J. Green (arm) has been downgraded to questionable to return to Monday night's Week 16 game against the Broncos.

Green originally hurt his arm on the Bengals' fourth offensive play, an Andy Dalton pick-six. He missed eight plays before returning for a few more with some padding on his bicep area. Green was able to run a few routes and see a total of four targets before exiting again. His night ends with zero catches.
Dec 22 - 11:25 PM

A.J. Green exited Week 16 against the Broncos with an arm injury but returned after missing eight snaps.

Green got popped by T.J. Ward on Andy Dalton's pick-six on the Bengals' fourth offensive play of the game. Dalton threw the ball high, and Ward delivered the blow. The trainers wrapped Green's bicep with some sort of padding. He's not 100 percent, but owners can breathe with fantasy titles on the line.
Dec 22 - 9:01 PM

Bengals declared WR Greg Little, WR James Wright, QB A.J. McCarron, OL Tanner Hawkinson, OLB Emmanuel Lamur, and CB Chris Lewis-Harris inactive for Week 16 against the Broncos.

None are real surprises. Little is a healthy scratch. McCarron is sick. Lamur has a hamstring injury, and Wright is battling a knee problem.
