The Pro Bowl receiver salvaged a frustrating night with what at the time appeared to be a game-winning 25-yard strike from A.J. McCarron. Green and McCarron otherwise had some trouble getting in sync under the game's adverse weather conditions, and it resulted in the 27-year-old's first game under 100 yards receiving in three meetings with the Steelers this season. Despite not having the benefit of Andy Dalton throwing him the ball during the last four games of the 2015 campaign, Green finished the regular season with an outstanding 86 receptions for 1,297 yards and 10 touchdowns.
A.J. Green caught four of five targets for 34 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Ravens.
After scoring just four touchdowns in the first 10 games of the season, Green really came on at the end, scoring seven times in the final six games. His yardage totals have been down in the last three weeks, a direct result of AJ McCarron being under center instead of Andy Dalton, but the latter has a shot to return from his broken thumb for the playoffs, which would certainly boost Green's value. Green finished the regular season with 86 catches on 132 targets for 1,297 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Green opened the scoring with an impressive five-yard touchdown catch along the sideline during the first quarter Monday. That marked Green's ninth touchdown of the season, and his fifth in as many games. Now, he'll prepare for Sunday's regular-season finale against a Ravens team he torched to the tune of 10 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns back in Week 3.
A.J. Green (back) is not listed on the Cincinnati Bengals ' Week 16 injury report.
Assuming no setbacks as the week rolls along, Green's availability for Monday night's game against the Broncos looks secure.
A.J. Green (back) appears on track to play Monday night against the Broncos, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Green, who injured his back this past Saturday, and was then hampered some in Sunday's win over the 49ers, was limited to one catch (on three targets) for 37 yards in the contest, while being on the field for 38 of the Cincinnati Bengals ' 64 snaps on offense. Per the report, Green "is dealing with a bruise, and there are no structural concerns," though it's possible that the wideout's practice participation this week could be affected by the issue.
