The Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts have released their respective inactive lists and, as we approached the deadline Sunday's deadline, we had a certain understanding on who would be available.

Wide receivers A.J. Green (concussion) and James Wright (knee) were already declared out by Sunday morning -- Green was announced on Saturday, reportedly after a visit with an independent specialist. Green suffered a concussion with four minutes remaining against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. Wright hasn't played since week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a knee, though he worked with the wide receivers during pregame work.

Gresham suffered a back injury against the Steelers and sat during practice on Wednesday and Thursday with limited work on Friday. Observers noted that Gresham didn't look good during pregame workouts and joined Green and Wright on the team's inactive list.

Brandon Tate will replace Green as the starting wide receiver opposite of Mohamed Sanu and Kevin Brock will replace Jermaine Gresham as the starting tight end.
