A.J. Green Injury Update: Bengals Receiver Hyperextends Knee

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green looked had a strong start to Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers as he hauled in a beautiful 36-yard touchdown catch. Unfortunately, Green came down awkwardly on the catch and limped off the field. Green returned for the rest of the second quarter, but he was unable to finish the game. Afterward, Green confirmed to the press that he had hyperextended his knee.

Green didn't think the injury was too serious, but he didn't seem completely sure about the timetable for his return. I'd imagine he'll see how he feels in the morning and if there is any swelling or any other problems with the knee. Marv Lewis will likely chat with the media tomorrow and hopefully will be able to provide an update on Green's condition.

In Green's absence, the Bengals spread the ball around with six different receivers catching the ball. Andrew Hawkins led all Bengals receivers with five receptions for 56 yards. Jermaine Gresham joined A.J. Green with a touchdown.

A.J. Green Fantasy Stats: Injury Slows Bengals WR

Bengals rookie A.J. Green is having a terrific rookie season, and that continued on Sunday when he caught a touchdown on pass from Andy Dalton, but he also came down gingerly on the play. Green returned before the end of the half, but he suffered an injury that kept him from building on his big start to the day.

The Bengals and fantasy football owners were both bummed with that result. Cincinnati lost to the Steelers 24-17.

Green had 599 receiving yards on the season with 5 receiving touchdowns entering Week 10. Green was averaging 75 yards receiving per game. 

Green was ranked as the 15th ranked wide receiver according to Yahoo! heading into his match up with the Pittsburgh Steelers who ranked 3rd against the pass, giving up 185 passing yards per game.

Andy Dalton Fantasy Stats: Some Good, Some Bad For Bengals QB

Andy Dalton put up some good stats and some bad stats in a tough loss to the Steelers on Sunday. The Bengals quarterback tossed two touchdown passes (Good!), but also two threw too picks (Bad!). He completed just 50 percent of his passes and only threw for 170 yards, a slightly below average day for Dalton.

An injury to A.J. Green -- who caught a touchdown pass -- didn't do much to help Dalton.

Dalton had 1,696 passing yards on the season with 12 passing touchdowns entering Week 10. Dalton was averaging 212 yards passing per game. 

Dalton was ranked as the 21st ranked quarterback according to Yahoo! heading into his match up with the Pittsburgh Steelers who ranked 3rd against the pass, giving up 185 passing yards per game.

VIDEO: AJ Green Makes Acrobatic TD Catch

AJ Green has been making a name for himself all year. With catches like this one against the Pittsburgh Steelers, you can bet he'll be talked about again. The Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver went over the back of two Steelers defenders to make this 36-yard touchdown catch.


The touchdown was Green's sixth of the season and this might be his best one. He did come down awkwardly, which put a bit of a scare into the moment, but he was able to walk off the field under his own power and appeared to be fine.

Jermaine Gresham Questionable With Hamstring Injury

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham returned to practice on Friday and is listed as "Questionable" for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a hamstring injury that has kept him out the last two weeks.

Gresham returned to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday before being held out on Thursday. Gresham was limited again on Friday and is expected to be a game-time decision on Sunday.

The second-year tight end has emerged as a security blanket for rookie quarterback Andy Dalton, catching 25 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns in the first six games of the season. Dalton has gone 40-of-68 for 385 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions the last two weeks, with the bulk of his passes going to wide receivers A.J. Green, Andre Caldwell and Jerome Simpson.

Should Gresham miss a third straight game with the hamstring, veteran Donald Lee will get the start for the Bengals. Lee has eight receptions for 106 yards on the season, including six catches for 93 yards the last two weeks.

Nate Washington Questionable With Hip Injury

After missing most of the week's practices with a hip ailment, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Nate Washington was limited on Friday and was listed as "Questionable" for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers.

The Titans' leading receiver following the season-ending injury to Kenny Britt, Washington has emerged as a favorite target of quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. On the season, Washington has 36 receptions for 461 yards and two touchdowns, but injured his hip during the final two minutes of last Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Washington expects to play on Sunday.

"It feels a lot better," Washington said on Thursday. "I don't know when Coach Munchak is going to allow me to practice again. I'm not too worried about it. My main job is to come in and do the work and get healthy."

In addition to Washington, Titans wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins is nicked up, but plans to play through a dislocated finger.
