Bengals WR A.J. Green (knee) will miss his 3rd-straight practice on Friday.  He'll still likely be listed as questionable and considered a game-time decision.  It's a huge game for Cincy against the Ravens, so they'll do everything in their power to get Green ready.  At far less than 100%, though, the rookie will be a risky fantasy option.  We'll have another update this afternoon.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (knee) missed his 2nd-straight practice on Thursday.  He's definitely in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Ravens.  He'll be a game-time call, but we'd like to see him get on the practice field Friday to feel comfortable starting him in fantasy leagues.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (knee) says he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Ravens.  "I feel pretty good," he said.  "Still a little stiff."  The MRI reportedy revealed a hyperextension and some bone bruising, but no ligament damage.  We're still tentatively expecting Green to play, but owners may need to sweat it out on Sunday morning.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (knee) won't practice on Wednesday.  Early-week signs have pointed to the rookie playing against the Ravens this weekend, but this will be a situation to track over the next few days.  Hopefully Green can get on the practice field on Thursday.

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis confirmed that WR A.J. Green (knee) is fully expected to be available for Week 11.  "A.J. should be fine," Lewis said.  Green underwent on MRI on Monday, which presumably came back clean.  Barring a setback in practice this week, he'll be safe to get into fantasy lineups for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Bengals WR A.J. Green injured his knee on a 1st-quarter TD catch against the Steelers on Sunday. He returned for the rest of the 1st half, but then spent the 2nd on the stationary bike. Afterwards, Green described the injury as a hyperextended knee. "Yeah, definitely. I think I’ll be back," Green said of his Week 11 status. "It doesn’t feel (like) anything serious." We'd say he's more like questionable to face the Ravens next Sunday.

3:25pm EST 11/13/11

Bengals WR A.J. Green appeared to suffer a right knee injury on a TD catch in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Steelers.  He was able to limp off the field under his own power.  We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: Green returned for Cincinnati's next possession.

Update: Green has spent the entire 2nd half on the sidelines.

As expected, Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is active for today's game against the 'Niners.  The toe injury that limited on Thursday and Friday never seemed like a concern.  The rookie is an intriguing fantasy play against a secondary that was just torched by the Cowboys.

Bengals WR A.J. Green was limited in practice again on Friday after coming down with a toe injury Thursday. HC Marvin Lewis admitted that Green was still “a little sore” on Friday, but he’s fully expected to play against the ‘Niners on Sunday. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Green in fantasy lineups in the favorable matchup.

Bengals WR A.J. Green was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice with a toe injury.  Beat writer Joe Reedy fully expects the rookie to play against the Cowboys on Sunday though.  Check back on Friday for an update.

Bengals QB Andy Dalton had his best game of the preseason last night against the Panthers. He completed 11 of 17 balls for 130 yards and a score. The TD came on a beautifully-thrown deep ball to WR A.J. Green for 40 yards. Dalton played with the starters for the entire 1st half, and the performance was likely enough to secure his spot in the starting lineup. That may not be a good thing for Green and fellow WR Jerome Simpson though. Dalton has been dinking-and-dunking all preseason, averaging just 5.6 yards per attempt. Bad news for big-play guys like Green and Simpson. You're best off avoiding this passing game unless you're getting incredible value.

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis calls rookie WR A.J. Green an "upgrade" over Chad Ochocinco.  It's probably a jab at Ocho more than anything else, but Green has reportedly been dominating early in training camp.  "He showed his physical prowess out there today," Lewis said.  Green has top-notch physical skills and is coming from a pro-style offense.  He's ready to contribute right away if he can get solid QB play from either Andy Dalton or Bruce Gradkowski.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Bengals have reached a contract agreement with 4th-overall pick WR A.J. Green.  He becomes the highest rookie to sign this year.  Green will be able to get on the field for the beginning of Bengals camp today, which is important considering he's expected to start from day 1.  A polished route-runner coming from a pro-style offense, Green is definitely capable of making a fantasy impact this season. 

Update: Green's deal is worth $19.6 million over 4 years.  The entire amount is guaranteed -- a new wrinkle that we could see more of with the rookie wage scale.

9:48am EDT 4/29/11

The Bengals selected Georgia WR A.J. Green with the 4th overall pick of the draft. Green was the best player on the board, fills a major need, and is owner Mike Brown's last ditch effort to keep QB Carson Palmer in Cincinnati. Green's addition also means WR Chad Ochocinco's Bengals career is all but over. At 6'4 and 211 pounds with good speed and a huge catching radius, Green reminds us a lot of Larry Fitzgerald. He should start from day 1 opposite WR Jerome Simpson.  But Green's fantasy value hinges on Cincinnati's QB situation.
