Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green practiced Wednesday for the first time since hyperextending his right knee on Nov. 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Green is still day to day, but said he was cautiously optimistic about a return to the field on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns after sitting out the Bengals' 31-24 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
"Playing football people get hurt, but I hope we can be back this week," Green told the Bengals' team website.
Tight end Donald Green (foot) also returned to practice after missing the last two games. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap (hamstring) did not practice.
