Green caught five of 12 targets for 64 yards and a lost fumble in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Bears.
Green made his first two receptions on what would be the Bengals' lone scoring drive of the day, after failing to connect with Andy Dalton on any of their first three attempts. The 29-year-old caught two passes of 18 or more yards on the first drive of the fourth quarter, but fumbled the second away and wasn't able to reel more targets in after that. Things probably won't get any easier in Week 15 when he'll likely be shadowed by the Vikings' Xavier Rhodes.
Green caught seven of 16 targets for 77 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 23-20 loss to the Steelers.
Green led the Bengals across the board in receiving, with his target count setting a new season high. Monday also marked Green's first multi-touchdown game of the campaign, as he scored from eight and 15 yards out on respective first-half end-zone trips. Although Green had a 61-yard touchdown nullified by a debatable holding call during the third quarter, his output should definitely still please fantasy owners.
Green was added to the injury report Friday after practicing in limited fashion due to an illness. However, he appears recovered from the issue, and looks on track to assume his usual role as the Bengals' No. 1 receiver Monday night, at home against Pittsburgh.
Green was listed as a limited participant in Friday's practice due to an illness, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Dehner relays that Green said he was just dealing with a minor cold and felt under the weather, so the expectation remains that he'll be able to play Monday against the Steelers. Even so, Green may need to put in a full practice Saturday during the Bengals' final session of the week in order to avoid a questionable designation heading into the Week 13 matchup.
Green caught five of eight pass attempts for 66 yards in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Browns.
It is only the third time in his last nine games that Green has failed to find the end zone, and his 66 yards are his second-highest total over his last six contests. Still, his athleticism was on full display in this one, as he made an incredible grab and dragged both feet inbounds on a 13-yard catch toward the end of the third quarter. The 29-year-old will continue to be Andy Dalton's primary target when Cincinnati hosts Pittsburgh in Week 13.
