The Cincinnati Bengals may very well be without their top wide receiver, A.J. Green, in a division showdown with the Baltimore Ravens this week. According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, the chances of Green playing this week are "not looking great." Losing Green this week would significantly impact the Bengals' chances of getting a one-game lead over Baltimore in the AFC North race.
Green hyperextended his knee in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. In the days following the injury, the team sounded unconcerned that Green would miss any playing time. Though he did not suffer any ligament damage, an MRI did reveal bone bruising. Green missed Wednesday's practice, and the Bengals said he would likely be a game-time decision yesterday.
Green missed practice again on Thursday.
Green leads the Bengals in receiving yards and touchdowns this season.
