Setback may delay A.J Green´s season debut for Bengals

Bengals coach Zac Taylor uttered the words everyone in Bengal-land has been waiting to hear:

“I do think A.J. will play this week.”

That would be A.J. Green, the team’s best player who has been out all year with an ankle injury. An hour and a half later, when practice started, Green was not at practice.

“It came after the walkthrough,” Taylor said. “He went and got some treatment. It just didn’t feel great, so we held him out of practice today. Now, we’ll go just by day-by-day.

“We felt good about the progress he was making. That’s why I said what I said. I didn’t feel like he could practice today. We’ll get through tonight and see where it’s at (Thursday).”

He injured his ankle in the first practice of training camp this year.

That injury required surgery, as well. It was expected that he’d miss four to six weeks at that point. We’re up to 13 weeks.

Coming off an ankle injury, the question isn’t about straight-ahead running so much as cutting – the key to running good routes. But, at the press conference, Taylor said Green was progressing on that.

“A.J. has gotten better every single day I’ve seen him,” Taylor said. “I think he’s making great progress. I don’t want to get too specific. But he’s getting confident, and we’re getting confident.

Then whatever happened Wednesday happened.

“He’s been making great progress this week,” Taylor said. “(Last) Wednesday was a good day. Monday was a good day. Now, he’s getting back into the fold. We’ll have a good plan in place for him on Sunday.”

Green, 31, has  played in only one game since Oct. 28 of last year. He was limited to nine games by a right foot injury last year. He missed three games with the injury and then re-injured it in his first game back – that required season-ending surgery.

Bengals’ John Ross expected to miss multiple games with shoulder injury

According to Mike Garafolo, Bengals wide receiver John Ross is expected to miss multiple games due to a shoulder injury he suffered during Monday night’s 27-3 loss Cincinnati suffered against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Garafolo reports that he could miss a month or so.

Late in the game, Ross was thrown to the ground by cornerback Joe Haden after making a catch. He would exit the matchup and not return, finishing with three catches for 36 yards on the night. 

Ross is arguably the only bright spot on a Bengals offense that has failed to score more than 20 points in a single game four weeks through the 2019 season. He had a huge performance in the season opener against the Seattle Seahawks, he had seven catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns. He followed up that game with four catches for 112 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers.

The former No. 9 overall pick fell off after that, however, making just five catches for 58 yards the following two weeks. 

Through four games, Ross already has more receiving yards than he has posted in each of the past two seasons.

He failed to record a catch in the three games he was active during his rookie season, and then had 21 receptions for 210 yards and seven touchdowns in 2018. Zac Taylor’s offense is still a work in progress, but Ross is the one who has benefitted the most from it so far. 

Cincinnati will now rely even more on Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate to carry the load offensively. Boyd had 10 catches for 122 yards in Week 2, but was held to just 33 yards on Monday night. Tate had six catches for 88 yards in Week 3, and led the Bengals in receiving with four catches for 50 yards against the Steelers.

Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts

Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis ColtsCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

in their final matches in the preseason, the Cincinnati Bengals meet the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium in the National Football League.

The match is on September 3, 2015 at 7:00 PM ET.

The matchup will mark the 24th all-time meeting between the teams in the preseason, with the Bengals holding a 15-8 advantage. It will mark the 15th consecutive season that the two teams have squared off in the preseason.

Because this is Week 4 of the preseason, we rarely see teams play their starters in this game, so don’t expect to see guys like Andy DaltonAndrew LuckA.J. GreenT.Y. HiltonGeno Atkins, or Vontae Davis play. Losing any of the aforementioned guys to a silly injury this week would be devastating with the regular season opening next week.

That doesn’t mean, however, that this game is of no important. Every NFL team must have their final 53-man rosters set by 4 p.m. EST on Saturday. Because this game is played Thursday night, that gives coaches and front-office personnel a full day to evaluate this game and use it to help determine which guys should make up those final 10-12 spots on each roster.

Cincinnati had a fairly decent preseason and even if they lose their final game against the Colts, they will end up with a .500 record. However, already at 2-1, expect them to try and end their exhibition games on a high.

Meanwhile, the Colts are 1-2 and are also trying to get a big win at home to give the crowd a lot to cheer for heading into the regular season.

The Bengals were victorious in the previous game week as they faced the Chicago Bears. AJ McCarron had an excellent game as he went for 12-17 for 149 yards and completed one touchdown.

Meanwhile, the Colts picked up their first win of the preseason when they beat the St. Louis Rams 24-14. Prior to the win, the Colts lost to the Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Colts went on an early lead, going up 10-0 after the first quarter but found themselves behind 14-13 at the end of three periods.

They were able to recollect themselves and score 11 points in the final frame, with their defence holding up and preventing the Rams to score as they went on to win.

Tyler Varga had six rushes for 16 yards and also converted one touchdown.

Time: 8:30pm Eastern Time

Where: Raymond James Stadium (Tampa, Florida)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers welcome the Cincinnati Bengals to town Monday night as the two face off in the final game of week 2 preseason action on Monday Night Football.

Highlighted by some stellar offensive efficiency, the Bengals are coming off an impressive 23-10 victory over the New York Giants, while Tampa Bay looks for more consistency from rookie quarterback Jameis Winston after last week’s 26-16 loss to Minnesota.

The Jameis Winston era in Tampa Bay got off to a slow start. While there were a few bright spots, Winston struggled overall in his NFL debut. Tonight, Jameis has the opportunity to improve on his performance in front of the bright lights of Monday Night Football

The Bucs will look a little different than they did in their initial preseason outing against the Minnesota Vikings. Since the 26-16 loss last Saturday night the Bucs have promoted rookie Kwon Alexander to the starting MLB position and moved Bruce Carter to the strong side. Carter will compete with Danny Lansanah for the starting spot there.
