Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. The swelling in that ankle has reportedly subsided, but Green didn’t practice at all this week. Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate will continue to serve as Cincinnati’s top 2 WRs vs. Oakland’s burnable secondary.
Cardinals WR A.J. Green is sidelined with a "minor issue," HC Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday. Kingsbury wouldn't divulge any other details but did say that he expects Green back sooner rather than later, according to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss. Green was reportedly having a strong start to camp before this injury. We'll see when he's able to get back on the field.
The Cardinals signed WR A.J. Green. No word yet on the terms, but it's likely a cheap, 1-year deal. After playing in just 9 games across 2018 and 2019, Green played all 16 last season -- but set career lows with an ugly 45.2% catch rate and 11.1 yards per catch. He ranked 79th in yards per route run and 66th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 84 WRs with 50+ targets. Green turns 33 in July and might just be out of gas. He figures to be no better than 3rd in line for targets in Arizona behind WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk. We'll see if WR Andy Isabella is ready to take on a bigger role in 2021.
Update: It's a 1-year deal worth "up to" $8.5 million with $6 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He put in a full practice on Friday, so he should be available for his usual role. That doesn’t make Green a recommended fantasy play, though. He hasn’t topped 51 yards all season.
Bengals WR A.J. Green suffered a hamstring injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. He was deemed doubtful to return, so don't expect to see him back out there. Green had already been getting out-played by rookie WR Tee Higgins over the past couple of weeks.
Bengals HC Zac Taylor suggested that WR A.J. Green's snaps could be limited in Sunday's opener against the Chargers. "Fifty-five is a lot of snaps. You always monitor that," Taylor said. "We're fortunate because we're deep at receiver and we feel like there are a lot of guys that can step in there and be a primary receiver." Green missed about a week of camp this summer with a hamstring injury after an ankle injury cost him the entire 2019 campaign. We'll see exactly how big a role he's ready for on Sunday, but we'd try to not use him in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
