Bengals' A.J. Green not expected to play vs. Ravens

The Cincinnati Bengals are preparing for another Sunday without the services of A.J. Green.

NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Saturday that the team doesn't expect the Pro Bowl wide receiver to play against the Baltimore Ravens because of his nagging toe injury, per a Bengals source.

Breer was told that Green is battling ligament damage under his big toe. The Bengals want to be careful with the lingering injury, which has knocked the pass-catcher out of two straight games.

It comes as little surprise after Green missed Friday's practice and was listed as doubtful for Sunday.

Without Green in the lineup, the Bengals pumped out 37 points in a tie against Carolina in Week 6. Last Sunday was a horror show, though, with Cincinnati suffering seven three-and-outs on its first eight possessions in a 27-0 loss to the Colts.
