The Bengals’ go-to receiver remains on the mend with a toe injury.
Wide receiver A.J. Green wasn’t seen working out with the club on Friday, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reported this morning. Green, who missed the Bengals’ Week Six tie vs. Carolina, did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Were Green to miss a full practice for a third straight day, his status for Sunday’s matchup at Indianapolis would seem in serious doubt.
If Green sits out yet another game, Brandon Tate will likely start opposite Mohamed Sanu, who’s the lead receiver in Green’s absence. With Green out against Carolina, Sanu was targeted on about a third of Andy Dalton’s 43 passes.
The Bengals also have Dane Sanzenbacher, James Wright, Greg Little and Cobi Hamilton at receiver.
