Director of Player Personnel Duke Tobin said Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine that Green (hamstring) has been given clearance to work out, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Prior to tearing his right hamstring in Week 11, Green was on pace for the sixth 1,000-yard season in as many years to start his career. Nevertheless, in what amounted to nine full games plus two snaps in the 10th, he finished with 964 yards on a career-best 66 percent catch rate, a metric that he's boosted in four consecutive campaigns. With the offseason program set to kick off in mid-April, he'll again aim to uphold the high standard established as he prepares for his age-29 season.
Green (hamstring) is anticipated to be ready when Cincinnati's voluntary workouts begin in late May, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports. Green's torn hamstring kept him out of Cincinnati's final six games of this season and will prevent him from participating in this month's Pro Bowl. However, with plenty of time before the team reconvenes for voluntary workouts, Green should be healthy once the Bengals begin their preparations for the 2017 campaign. A full return this spring would ensure Green, who totaled 66 catches for 964 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games, remains an elite option at his position ahead of next season.
Green (hamstring) will not play in the Pro Bowl, Paul Dehner Jr of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Green will opt to skip out on the Pro Bow in order to continue nursing a hamstring sprain he suffered in Week 11. One the league's top talents, Green registered 66 catches for 964 yards and four TDs in 10 games this season. His focus now shifts towards making a full recovery in the hopes of being ready for team activities this offseason.
Green (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Green had already been ruled out for Week 17's season finale against the Ravens, so the Bengals will be able to sign offensive lineman Trey Hopkins from the practice squad with Green now on IR. The team is otherwise healthy at wideout, with Brandon LaFell, Tyler Boyd, and James Wright serving as quarterback Andy Dalton's top three options Sunday.
Green (hamstring) won't play in Sunday's season finale against the Ravens, NFL.com reports. With TE Tyler Eifert on IR, the Bengals will close out their regular season slate minus their top two pass-catchers. The team's top receiving targets in Week 17 thus figure to be wideouts Brandon LaFell, Cody Core and Tyler Boyd, along with tight end C.J. Uzomah. Geen, who is under contract with the Bengals through 2019, will finish the 2016 campaign with 66 catches for 964 yards and four TDs in 10 games.
