01/11/18WRA.J. GreenKneeQUESTIONABLEGreen will skip the Pro Bowl, as he tends to a minor knee injury, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Green's knee issue is something that is expected to be resolved by rest, with the report indicating that the wideout's availability for the Bengals' spring workouts shouldn't be impacted. He logged 75 catches (on 145 targets) for 1,078 yards and eight TDs this past season, decent but not spectacular numbers for the 2011 first-rounder, who turns 30 at the end of July. Looking ahead, Green remains entrenched as his team's top pass-catching weapon, but a 7-9 record this past season presumably foreshadows a fair degree of offseason personnel changes for Cincinnati. Specifically, look for a retooling of the team's offensive line, and a changing of the guard at tight end could be on tap with Tyler Eifert set to become an unrestricted free agent. Moreover, John Ross, the No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, played just 17 snaps as a rookie, and if the young wideout can stay healthy enough to capitalize on his blinding speed, Green could be flanked by a legitimate big-play threat in 2018.

12/31/17LBVontaze BurfictShoulderQUESTIONABLEBurfict (shoulder) was downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Katherine Terrell of reports.

Burfict was listed as doubtful after not participating at practice this week so it's unsurprising to see him downgraded as the Bengals try to play spoiler in Week 17. Jordan Evans and Hardy Nickerson should both see increased snaps at weak-side linebacker as Burfict's injury-marred 2017 season -- one that also included a suspension -- officially comes to an end.
