A.J. Green's toe 'not a long-term injury'


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green's toe injury is not likely to be a long-term injury, coach Marvin Lewis said Monday.

Green left Week 2 as a result of the injury, but may end up missing just a maximum of one game. NFL.com reported earlier in the day Green is likely to return after the team's Week 4 bye, at the latest. 


A.J. Green should miss one game, at the most


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green's sprained toe ligament injury is likely to cost him just one week of action, at the most, according to NFL.com.

Though no time is a good time for an all-pro receiver like Green to go down, the Bengals have just one game left before their Week 4 by. As a result, even if he is unable to play in Week 3 against the Titans, Green is expected to be back in the lineup in time for Week 5 against the Patriots Oct. 5.

Green was forced out of Sunday's game in Week 2 due to the injury. 


A.J. Green's injury doesn't appear serious


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) The foot injury (or toe, as some have classified it) that sidelined Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green for most of Week 2 against Atlanta is the same injury that limited him in practice Wednesday and Thursday, according to the team's official website, and doesn't appear serious.

He wasn't on crutches after the game, and even if he's unable to go Week 3 against the Titans, he's a good bet to return after the bye Week 5 at New England.


A.J. Green done for Week 2


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has been ruled out for the rest of Week 2 against Atlanta. Green walked to the locker room after the team's first drive with what was originally termed a toe injury but was later determined to be a strained ligament in his foot. He wasn't targeted on the drive.

Green had a typically big performance Week 1 at Baltimore, catching six passes for 131 yards and a touchdown, but he was limited in practice by a foot injury leading up to Week 2.

His status for Week 3 against the Titans is, as of now, unknown.

(9/14/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green walked to the locker room with a toe injury after the team's first drive Week 2 against Atlanta. His return is questionable.

A.J. Green good to go Sunday


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

A.J. Green returns to Friday practice


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was spotted back at practice Friday, after sitting out Thursday's session with a foot issue. He had been limited Wednesday, but appears on his way to playing in Week 2 against the Falcons, if he avoids a setback Friday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

A.J. Green limited Wednesday due to foot injury

(9/10/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was limited in practice Wednesday due to a foot injury, according to the team's official website. The Bengals are preparing to play the Falcons Week 2.

A.J. Green wins it with late touchdown


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has made a living out of torching the Ravens recently, and he kept that trend going in a 23-16 win in Week 1 Sunday.

Green led the Bengals with 131 receiving yards in the game, much of which came on a game-winning 77-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. He led the team with six receptions on nine targets overall, while average 21.8 yards per catch.

Green will look to keep rolling when the Bengals host the Falcons in Week 2 next Sunday.  


A.J. Green looking for more big plays vs. Ravens


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) After Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green torched them for 212 yards and two touchdowns in a pair of matchups a year ago, you can be sure Ravens coach John Harbaugh is well aware of just how many ways Green can hurt a defense.

"There's nothing he really doesn't do well," Harbaugh told ESPN.com Wednesday.

With three 1,000-yard seasons under his belt, Green's all-around skillset is well known at this point. However, he didn't need his whole arsenal against the Ravens a year ago, as he did most of his damage with big plays last season. According to ESPN.com, Green had three plays travel over 40 yards through the air in two games against the Ravens last season; Baltimore allowed just seven such plays all season.

The Ravens ranked right in the middle of the pack with 21.9 Fantasy points allowed per game to opposing wide receivers, and they do not seem likely to shut Green down this time around. He is ranked No. 6 among receivers on both of our experts' rankings, and should be considered a must-start option for Week 1. 


A.J. Green already in midseason form in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was only targeted twice, but that was all he needed to finish as the team's leading receiver during Thursday's preseason opener against the Chiefs.

Andy Dalton hooked up with Green for a 9-yard gain on the first play from scrimmage. Four plays later, Green hauled in a 53-yard bomb, which set up a field goal on the opening drive. He finished with two catches for 62 yards.

A.J. Green: I've yet to hit my peak


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green has gained 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first three years and scored 29 touchdowns over that span. But he doesn't feel like he's played his best yet, reports ESPN.

"If you're a great athlete, I feel like you'll think you always left something [on the table]," Green said. "I feel like I still haven't reached my peak yet." 

Green had 98 catches for 1,426 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013. If he has yet to reach his peak then the rest of the league could be in trouble this year.

Green expects new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson to push him to new heights this season.

"He's never satisfied with where I am," Green said of Jackson. "That's one thing about him. No matter what I do or what I've accomplished these first three years, there's always more I can do. I remember when the [NFL Network's] Top 100 came out and I was the No. 2 receiver, he said, 'OK, let's go be No. 1.'"


A.J. Green staying loyal to Andy Dalton


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green told NFL Network he's hoping quarterback Andy Dalton receives a contract extension. "We came in together and that is the great thing for me and him," Green said. "I know he's my guy. I don't want any other quarterback throwing me the ball. I think he feels the same way about me."

Green said he's built chemistry with Dalton in their three years together.

"He feels confident that whether I'm double covered, triple covered, it don't matter I'm going to come down with the ball," Green said. "And I feel like we've grown over these last three years and I feel like this year is going to be another key year for us."


Ankle tweak sidelines A.J. Green


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green is not participating in Bengals practice Tuesday because of an ankle tweak. "Nothing major," says the official team website. 

A.J. Green bulks up to 214 pounds


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green has added six pounds to 214, mostly in the upper body, reports the team's website. The three-time Pro Bowler said he wants to get more physical so he can better beat coverage at the line of scrimmage.

The 6-4 Green set career highs with 98 catches for 1,426 yards last season and matched his career best with 11 touchdowns.


Bengals pick up option on A.J. Green


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) The Bengals have exercised a fifth-year option on receiver A.J. Green, reports ESPN.

Green, who returned to Cincinnati over the weekend for Monday's start of voluntary offseason workouts, was asked earlier Monday about how he would feel if the Bengals ended up offering him a fifth-year option as opposed to working out a longer term contract extension this offseason.

"It's what's in the new CBA. There's nothing I can do about it," he said. "That [affects] everybody."

He added that he has been staying away from the talks involving his representatives and the Bengals.

"I don't pay attention to that stuff. I'm still under contract," Green said. "Like I say, my body of work speaks for itself. Whenever the time's right, it's right. That's one thing I don't get involved with. I just go out there and play the game and whatever happens, happens."

Green ranks second all-time in receiving yards for a player through his first three seasons. He's caught 260 passes for 3,833 yards. Of those, a career-high 1,426 came last year.


Bengals, A.J. Green not talking extension - yet


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/18/2014) The Bengals are expected to exercise the fifth-year option on receiver A.J. Green's contract by May 3, reports Pro Football Talk. But the sides have yet to discuss a long-term contract extension, according to the report.

The Bengals hold the rights to Green through the 2015 season. And in 2016, if a long-term deal hasn't been signed yet, the Bengals can use the franchise tag on Green for that season.

The report says Green can force the issue by trying to boycott offseason workouts or hold out from training camp. But Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is confident Green will be there.


Bengals to exercise 2015 option on A.J. Green


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Bengals owner Mike Brown said receiver A.J. Green will be on the team at least two more seasons, as the club will exercise its 2015 option for $10.176 million. It's a no-brainer move that prevents Green from hitting free agency until March 2016.

A.J. Green wants extension, but says he's in no rush


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green, who's entering the final year of his rookie deal, said he'd like an extension before the end of next season but added, "I'm in no financial debt, so no rush," reports ESPN.com.

Green set career highs in catches (98) and receiving yards (1,426) this season while hauling in 11 touchdown passes. In three career playoff games, he has 13 catches on 32 targets for 161 scoreless yards. He had a huge drop late in Sunday's playoff loss to the Chargers.

Green told the website he aims to be more of a leader next year.

"I have to be more vocal and demand things," Green said. "It's going to be hard but I feel like I've done enough here to say some things. I still have to be more vocal. Not selfish, but talk to people."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Green was targeted nine times, but only caught three passes. He finished the game with 34 yards. It was an off day for Green.
