Green did not put any weight on his foot as he hobbled to the sidelines with the assistance of trainers.
|Nov 30 2018 - A.J. Green|
WR A.J. Green appears good to go for Sunday's matchup against the visiting Denver Broncos. Green, who was not listed on the team's injury report Friday, will provide a much-needed boost for the slumping Bengals after he sat out the past three games due to a toe injury. Cincinnati (5-6) lost all three games without Green in the lineup to drop into ninth place in the crowded AFC race for the sixth and final playoff slot -- one game behind the division rival Baltimore Ravens.
|Nov 30 2018 - Andy Dalton|
QB Andy Dalton does not expect his thumb injury to affect his preparations for next season. Dalton, who underwent season-ending surgery earlier this week on his right thumb, told the Athletic that the injury will not prevent him from being ready to throw for the start of organized team activities in April. The veteran quarterback reportedly had the procedure to repair torn ligaments in the thumb. Dalton, who also broke the thumb during the postseason in 2015, said he wants to make sure the injury is fully healed. "There's no reason to rush anything," Dalton said. "It's kind of the same thing when it happened last time, it was like 'OK, you could be playing in the next round of the playoffs or don't touch a football for a couple months.'"
|Nov 29 2018 - Jake Fisher|
T Jake Fisher was placed on reserve/injured by the Bengals Thursday (Nov. 30). While he would normally eligible to be designated for return and begin practicing after missing at least six weeks and playing in eight weeks, the first game he would be available would be the Super Bowl.

|Nov 29 2018 - Andre Smith|
T Andre Smith was signed by the Bengals Thursday (Nov. 30). He had waived by the Cardinals Monday.

He played with the team from 2009-15, then spent one season with the Minnesota Vikings in 2016 before returning to Cincinnati for 2017.

Green took part in Wednesday's walkthrough and said he's "back to play" for the slumping Bengals (5-6), who have lost all three games in his absence. The presence of the seven-time Pro Bowl selection would help greatly as Jeff Driskel is expected to make his first career start in place of fellow quarterback Andy Dalton, who was placed on injured reserve with a season-ending thumb injury.

|Nov 25 2018 - Jeff Driskel|
QB Jeff Driskel relieved an injured Andy Dalton in the third Sunday against the Browns. The seldom-used Driskel led the Bengals on two scoring drives to cut the Browns' lead to 35-20.

DT Adolphus Washington (knee) was placed on reserve/injured by the Bengals Friday (Nov. 23).
