Bengals QB Andy Dalton (right shoulder) took full practice reps again Friday. Dalton should be able to play through the shoulder injury. The larger concern is that he’ll be without top wideout A.J. Green.

Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) did not practice Wednesday. If LaFell can’t play, Andy Dalton will be really shorthanded against the Ravens. Tyler Boyd and Tyler Eifert figure to lead the team in targets.
The Cincinnati Bengals lost one of their top playmakers on the second play from scrimmage Sunday.
Wide receiver A.J. Green was the intended target for Andy Dalton on second-and-15. The pass was a little high and Green was hit by Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore. As Green fell to the turf at Paul Brown Stadium, he immediately grabbed the back of his right leg.
After Green was carted off the field, the Bengals reported he had a hamstring injury and that his return was questionable. He was eventually downgraded to out.
The reality for owners is this looks like a pretty significant injury that could cost Green some time, however we won't know anything for sure until at least after the game, and maybe not until later in the week.

There is no telling how far along — or how rich — Terrelle Pryor might be today had he given up the dream of being a quarterback and converted to wide receiver earlier in his career.
Hue Jackson, the Browns’ head coach, knew receiver was the better position for the 6-foot-4 former Buckeye. And Jackson should know, because this is the third team on which Pryor has played for him.
Jackson was the head coach in Oakland when the Raiders took Pryor in the supplemental draft in 2011. He was the Bengals’ offensive coordinator in 2015 when Pryor spent about six weeks trying to latch on as a backup to Andy Dalton. The Bengals released them after their minicamp last year.
The Browns claimed Pryor on waivers on June 22, 2015, after their offseason program was completed. He was impossibly behind when training camp began and early on he pulled a hamstring. He made the 53-man roster, was cut on Sept. 10 and then re-signed by the Browns Dec. 2. A year later, Pryor is playing like a starter. The thought of Pryor and Josh Gordon spread wide (when Gordon returns from his four-game suspension), with Corey Coleman in the slot, could give the Browns weapons they haven’t had on offense since the days of Kellen Winslow and Braylon Edwards in 2007, the story said.
Andy Dalton is back to zipping the ball. He’s got no restrictions with his throwing thumb; he’s got one visit under his belt to passing specialist Dr. Tom House last month, and after watching two of his most established targets leave via free agency he got one back with a Super Bowl ring and knows Pro Bowlers A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert are already here.
“It would be tougher if it was my first or second year, but this is year six,” Dalton says Monday from Dallas of his revamped receiving corps. “It’s easier for me now than early on in my career. That is going to be fun. We’ve got these guys from the start; we’ve got to get them exactly where we want them to be.
The two guys who lockered next to him and meant so much to the passing game won’t be here two weeks from Monday when the Bengals gather for offseason workouts. Wide receiver Marvin Jones turned down at least the same $40 million to go to Detroit and Mohamed Sanu got No. 2 money in Atlanta when a No. 4 role loomed in Cincinnati.
