A..J. Green Expected To Play Despite Shoulder Injury

Cincinnati Bengals first-round wide receiver A.J. Green is expected to play on Saturday despite his injured right shoulder.

Green, the fourth overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, injured his shoulder in last week's win over the St. Louis Rams. The injury had him as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but Green was able to participate fully on Friday and is listed as "Probable" on the final injury report of the week.

Green leads all rookie receivers with 61 receptions, 1,006 yards and seven touchdowns. With the Bengals still alive in the AFC Playoffs hunt, Green was not going to let the sprained AC joint keep him out of the lineup.

"I had it before and it’s nothing serious. I’m definitely not going to miss these last two games for nothing," Green said earlier this week according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
