Green nabbed eight of 11 targets for 77 yards in Sunday's loss to Denver.
Green rebounded well after Week 2's tough two-catch game against Pittsburgh. The statuesque receiver failed to haul in a pass longer than 20 yards, but had a solid game underneath against Denver's vaunted secondary. His lone slip up was a costly drop on what would have been a third-down conversion with the Bengals driving and down by five points. His next test will be against a Miami secondary that has allowed a 90-yard receiver in all three games.
Green did not participate in Wednesday's session following the birth of his child, but he was back at practice just one day later. Green said in the past he would be willing to sit out a game if it fell on the same day as the birth, but given the timing that it actually happened, it seems likely he will be good to go for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
The highlight of the sixth-year receiver's afternoon was burning cornerback Darrelle Revis for a 54-yard score in the second quarter. Green was clearly glad to have regular starting quarterback Andy Dalton back, and remains a top-notch fantasy option coming off an 86-catch, 1,297-yard season in which he found pay dirt 10 times. His combination of health and production has allowed Green to top 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first five campaigns.
As expected, Green has made a full recovery from the bruised knee he suffered in the third week of the preseason. He'll likely see a lot of Darrelle Revis during Sunday's game against the Jets, but with TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) not expected to play, the tough matchup probably won't dissuade Andy Dalton from targeting his go-to receiver. Green should be in for a busy year.
