Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis ruled All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green out for Sunday's regular season finale against Baltimore earlier in the week, but on Saturday the team offered no room for speculation when it finally placed Green on injured reserve.

On Friday, Lewis said Green was around the facility, happy, smiling -- and the receiver issued a short statement addressing any rumor that he was unhappy with the club for not allowing him to play as "not true."

"He's a rare person, yes," Lewis said. "He's a very rare, rare person. As I told him, we're going to need to call on his rare abilities as we move forward, for him to bring everybody to his level all the time, being what he is, how he does things."

Fantasy Impact:

The move officially ends Green's season, though he has not played since the second snap of the game against Buffalo on Nov. 20. He was elected to the Pro Bowl despite playing in nine full games. He caught 66 passes for 964 yards and four touchdowns.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 16. Green plans to return so barring a setback, we expect he’ll be out there against the Texans. The Bengals only have pride to play for at this point. It’s a tough matchup and it’s difficult to trust Green after such a long layoff, but he’s one of the best receivers in the league for a reason. Here’s what ESPN’s Bob Holtzman had to say: “He still hasn't had a full practice, but I'm told he did more this week than last week, that he lobbied to play tomorrow night, and that he will play. Tough spot though after more than a month off to return versus one of the NFL's best pass defenses.”

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert ruled out for Week 16

Bengals ruled out Tyler Eifert for Saturday vs Houston.

Tyler Kroft was also ruled out.

Related players: C.J. Uzomah, A.J. Green, Jeremy Hill, Brandon LaFell

Fantasy Impact:

Uzomah should play a ton of snaps, but the Texans have been a tough matchup for opposing tight ends this season (#7 in TE aFPA). Green and Brandon LaFell get a bump in likely red zone usage. Jeremy Hill might see an extra goal line carry as well.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) expected to practice Wednesday

ESPN - [Full Article]

Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said wide receiver A.J. Green expects to return to practice on Wednesday.

Green traveled with the team to Cleveland last week, but he did not do any pre-game warmups prior to the game against the Browns, which was held in snowy conditions.

“We’ll see how he practices and see what he’s doing. But if he goes out and proves that he can do it on the practice field, then obviously he’ll be back and ready to go,” Lewis said.

Fantasy Impact:

Green has not played in a game or practiced since Week 11 when he was carted off against the Bills with a Grade II hamstring tear. He has missed the past three games, but he has been jogging and doing work on the rehab field during practice.
