News: The Bengals released Green-Ellis on Friday, a move that was anticipated after they drafted LSU's Jeremy Hill in the second round. Impact: Green-Ellis was Cincinnati's leading rusher each of the last two seasons. His role was reduced last year when Giovani Bernard was added to the backfield. Green-Ellis ran for 756 yards and a career-low 3.4 yards per carry. He was entering the final year on his contract.(STATS, 3:45pm)

News: The Bengals have released Green-Ellis (hip), the team's official site reports. Impact: The move was largely predictable, after the Bengals drafted fellow running back Jeremy Hill in May's NFL draft. Green-Ellis, who has been dealing with hip pointer, figures to catch on elsewhere assuming his health and depending on where he lands, it's conceivable that he can reclaim some fantasy utility in deeper formats, especially in the event that he finds himself in his new team's short-yardage mix.(RotoWire, )

News: Green-Ellis (hip) did not play in Sunday's preseason game at Arizona. Impact: Cincinnati is high on power rookie Jeremy Hill, who had 12 carries for 48 yards Sunday. If Green-Ellis' hip injury continues to linger, it might give the Bengals incentive to cut him. That hasn't been discussed much though, so it's purely speculation at this point. Whether Green-Ellis makes the roster or not is somewhat irrelevant, as his role appears to be severely diminished.(RotoWire, )

News: Green-Ellis missed practice Friday with a hip issue, the Bengals' official site reports. Impact: At this stage, there is nothing to suggest that Green-Ellis' hip injury is a major concern, but it is something that clouds his availability for Sunday's preseason contest against the Cardinals.(RotoWire, )

News: Green-Ellis (unspecified issue) did not practice Friday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Impact: At this stage, Green-Ellis' status for Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals is uncertain, but if he is forced to sit out the contest, Jeremy Hill figures to see added work behind starter Giovani Bernard, with Cedric Peerman and James Wilder representing the team's other current healthy backfield options.(RotoWire, )
