Green (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
Green was unable to practice all week due to a lingering ankle injury, so his absence for game day comes as no surprise. The wideout will turn his focus to getting ready for the Week 12 game against the Steelers, but it's far from a given that he'll be cleared to play in that contest. Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate will continue to serve as the Bengals' top wide receivers for the duration of Green's absence.
Green (ankle) is expected to be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
Per Ben Baby of ESPN.com, the swelling in Green's surgically repaired left ankle "went down" some this week, but not to the point that Green was able to practice. Official confirmation that the wideout will miss his 14th straight game -- a streak that dates back to last season -- will arrive upon the release of the Bengals' final Week 11 injury report later Friday. it can be assumed that Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate will serve as the team's top wide receivers Sunday.
Green (ankle) wasn't present on the field for Thursday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Coach Zac Taylor is viewing Green as day-to-day and hasn't ruled out the wideout for Sunday's game against the Raiders, but Green's back-to-back absences from practice to begin the week don't bode well for his chances of debuting in Oakland. Unless Green can change the narrative with a full showing in practice Friday, the Bengals appear set to proceed with Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate as their top two pass-catching options in Week 11.
Coach Zac Taylor said Wednesday that Green (ankle) won't practice and is considered day-to-day, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Green's day-to-day designation is somewhat difficult to take at face value, considering the rocky road to recovery that's defined his 2019 campaign thus far. The veteran wideout is still working back from left ankle surgery and had his chances of making a return last week against the Ravens delayed when he experienced some unexpected swelling. In the event that the star wideout is forced to miss more time, Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate will once again serve as Cincinnati's top options at the position.
Green (ankle) was able to complete a pregame workout prior to the Bengals' 49-13 loss to the Ravens on Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
There was some optimism early in Week 10 that Green might be ready to make his season debut versus Baltimore, but those hopes diminished after his surgically repaired left ankle swelled up and prevented him from practicing in any fashion Wednesday through Friday. Despite the setback and the 0-9 Bengals' status as a non-contender, the team reportedly has no plans to shut the star receiver down for the season. Instead, Green will be reassessed early this week before the team determines his availability for its next game Nov. 17 versus the Raiders.
