Green caught eight of 11 targets for 96 yards during Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Colts. Green set new season highs in targets, receptions and receiving yards in what turned into a surprisingly competitive contest. His long gain went for just 19 yards, but he consistently got open and showed a much-improved rapport with Joe Burrow after totaling just one catch for three yards over the last two games. Green's output improved dramatically despite the success of teammates Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, suggesting the trio can all succeed for a Bengals team that figures to be behind quite often in upcoming games. He'll look to build off this effort in a favorable matchup against the Browns next Sunday.
Green (hamstring) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game in Indianapolis, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. After opening the week with back-to-back LP listings on the practice report, Green elevated to full participation Friday, per Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site. It appears Green will be able to gut out his tweaked left hamstring from this past Sunday versus the Ravens, which limited him to a season-low 42 percent of the snaps on offense. He'll look to bounce back to his typical 60-75 percent snap share against a Colts defense that has given up the second-fewest receiving yards per game (136.8) to wideouts this season.
Green (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports. For the second straight day, Green reps were capped on account of the left hamstring he tweaked in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. According to Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site, the wideout said he plans to push through the injury to play Week 6 in Indianapolis, but he may need to upgrade to full activity Friday to avoid taking a designation into the weekend. After sitting out the entire 2019 campaign with an ankle injury, Green has struggled to recapture top form, hauling in only 14 of 34 targets for 119 yards and no scores through five games. Despite slot man Tyler Boyd and promising rookie Tee Higgins both having demonstrated a better rapport thus far with new quarterback Joe Burrow, Green said Thursday that he still believes in head coach Zac Taylor's offensive scheme and has no plans to ask the front office for a trade, per Jay Morrison of The Athletic.
Green (hamstring) logged a limited practice Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Green was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Ravens due to an aggravation of his left hamstring injury, but his ability to take the field Wednesday -- albeit in a limited capacity -- suggests that the veteran pass-catcher could suit up this weekend against the Colts. Five games into the season, Green's fantasy impact has been modest, with the 32-year-old having yet to reach the end zone while recording 14 receptions for 119 yards.
Coach Zac Taylor said Monday that he has no timetable for Green (hamstring) to return, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Green was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Ravens due to an aggravation of his left hamstring injury, per Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer. The veteran wideout wasn't able to haul in his only target before leaving the field, and he previously had just one catch Week 4. If Green were forced to miss significant time, it's possible that John Ross (illness) could find his way back into the lineup behind Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins.
