The Cincinnati Bengals were moving the football. Down 20-17 with 4:00 minutes remaining in the game, quarterback Andy Dalton ripped the football to a wide-open A.J. Green who reached the Steelers 30-yard line. When he reached the 30-yard line, he had the football stripped and took a headshot from another player.

After laying on the turf for several minutes, Green was helped to the sidelines and didn't return. Cincinnati announced after the game that Green was undergoing concussion protocols.

The Bengals will head to Indianapolis for wildcard weekend against the Colts this Sunday (1 p.m. on CBS) and it's unknown if Green will be available. This is his third significant injury of the season, with a toe that kept him out for three games (and most of a fourth), as well as a deep biceps bruise last week.
