The Bengals still aren't exactly sure when injured Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green will be rejoining their ranks, coach Marvin Lewis said Friday afternoon.
After Green's visit to a foot specialist last week in Cincinnati, the hope was that the third-year star wideout would be back after this week. But the possibility exists his return could take a little longer.
Asked Friday about a more defined timetable for Green's return from a big toe injury that kept him out of last week's game and will do the same this Sunday, Lewis simply said "the time is up in the air."
As we've stated before, the Colts are not a favorable matchup for wide receivers. Mohamed Sanu is a strong WR2, while Brandon Tate is one of our Sneaky Starts with Green out of the lineup.

Week 7: Sanu vs Colts
Mohamed Sanu finally stepped up and his patient fantasy owners were rewarded. Ten catches, 120 yards and touchdown is a good day. Now, part of the reason for his success is the absence of A.J. Green, who might not play again this week. If he doesn't Sanu's stock rises. But even if he does, Sanu could benefit from the breakout game from a confidence standpoint.
One obstacle for Sanu and all of the Bengals' receiver is the Colts defense. They are #1 in aFPA to wide receivers this season. That will push Sanu down to a solid WR2 for Week 7.
