The question everyone has been asking since the preseason is “When will A.J. Green be back?”
We still don’t know for sure, but we just learned some good news. Green (ankle) has returned to practice for the first time since training camp. He only went through position drills, which is still progress.
While Green is still week-to-week, there’s a chance he may finally see some action in Week 7. This couldn’t come at a better time, with John Ross (shoulder) still on injured reserve and Alex Erickson working through a concussion. The good news on the Erickson front is that he was a full go on Thursday.
Shawn Williams (thigh) did not practice, along with Ryan Glasgow (thigh) and Kerry Wynn (concussion).
On the offensive line, Andre Smith (ankle) is still working through his injury, as OL coach Jim Turner said either John Jerry or Alex Redmond will start at LT this week, which also rules out a Cordy Glenn (concussion, limited) return. Glenn was limited Wednesday but didn’t practice today, which is pretty strange, especially since this very situation happened two weeks ago.
Other players who were limited include Carlos Dunlap (knee), Dre Kirkpatrick (personal), John Miller (groin), and Nick Vigil (ankle).
Bengals injury report
Ravens injury report
The Ravens were just as beat up as the Bengals but seem much healthy after Thursday’s report. WR Marquise Brown (ankle), LB Patrick Onwuasor (ankle), and CB Jimmy Smith (knee) missed practice for the second straight day. TE Mark Andrews (shoulder) and CB Maurice Canady (thigh) were on the rehab field after missing practice on Wednesday.
RB Mark Ingram, G Marshal Yanda, S Earl Thomas, and CB Brandon Carr were all back at practice after getting veteran’s days on Wednesday. DT Brandon Williams got the day off on Thursday.
