Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. After losing a fumble with four minutes remaining against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday night, Green collided with safety Mike Mitchell leaving the wide receiver dazed and confused.

The team immediately announced that Green would be placed under concussion protocols, where he remained following Friday's practice. Green, reportedly is seeing (or has already seen) a specialist on Friday and an independent doctor on Saturday. He was a limited participant in uniform on Thursday but was a non-participant on Friday. We believe Green's role against the Indianapolis Colts will be determined several hours before Sunday's kickoff.

Wide receiver James Wright, who has been out since Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a knee, is out this weekend. He didn't practice at all.

If Green is unable to go, the Bengals' wide receivers against the Colts this Sunday will be: Mohamed Sanu, Brandon Tate, Cobi Hamilton and Greg Little.

Tight end Jermaine Gresham, who suffered a back injury last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, is listed as questionable. Gresham, limited on Friday after sitting on Wednesday and Thursday, has scored a touchdown in three straight games and five out of the last six, all from within the 12-yard line. His increased red zone production will be significant, especially if Green isn't cleared from concussion protocols.

Look at it this way: A.J. Green (6) and Jermaine Gresham (5) account for 57.9 percent of Andy Dalton's touchdown passes this season.

Running back Cedric Peerman is listed as questionable.
