Carlos Dunlap talks giving back for Thanksgiving, shares good news on A.J. Green

It’s great to hear that Green is walking around and as always, we love hearing about Carlos Dunlap’s contributions to the Cincinnati community.

Carlos Dunlap is always active in the Cincinnati community. Whether it’s planning a spa day for women who have or have battled through breast cancer, providing SAT classes for high school students, or planning a back to school fundraiser for local students, if Dunlap isn’t preparing for his next football opponent, he likely is giving back in the community.

In gearing up for the holiday season, Dunlap and a few of his teammates served Thanksgiving dinner to a group of more than 100 people at City Gospel Mission. Joining Dunlap were his Bengals teammates Michael Johnson, Brandon LaFell (and his children), Karlos Dansby and Marcus Hardison.

Dunlap says he decided to serve Thanksgiving dinner this year to those less fortunate to humble himself and remember where he came from.

Johnson also teamed up with Darqueze Dennard and Derron Smith for another event with City Gospel Mission this week.

Additionally, in talking with TMZ this week, Dunlap was questioned about how his injured teammates are doing, namely A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard.

“A.J. was walking around yesterday, obviously getting treatment,” Dunlap said. The Bengals defensive end also gave a birthday shoutout to Giovani Bernard, who he hasn’t seen since the running back went down with an ACL tear.

It’s encouraging to hear that Green is already up and moving around; that’s likely the most you can ask for right now as we wish him a speedy recovery.
