A.J. Green won't practice Friday; Don't expect him vs. Ravens

Don't expect to see A.J. Green playing this week vs. the Ravens, and if he does, it will be as nothing more than a decoy for the Bengals.

It doesn't look like the Bengals will have their best offensive weapon when they face the Ravens in Week 8. Wide receiver A.J. Green told Butch Hobson that he isn't going to practice on Friday, meaning he would have missed three straight weeks of practice since playing in his last game.

However, Green did say that him not practicing Friday doesn't rule him out vs. Baltimore.

Still, don't expect to see Green playing this week, and if he does, it will be as nothing more than a decoy. With him out, that means Mohamed Sanu, Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher will have to carry the load at WR. Anything the team gets from rookie James Wright and recently-signed Greg Little will be an unexpected bonus.

An already tough matchup for the Bengals just got tougher.
