Print

A shroud of mystery continues to surround Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green's availability for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

The Bengals officially designated Green (toe) as questionable on Friday's injury report despite the receiver not practicing the entire week. Green hasn't played since Week 8.

Whether Green actually suits up for action remains to be seen, but the questionable designation signals a 50-50 chance barring a downgrade before the game.

Meanwhile, the Bengals placed defensive tackle Adolphus Washington (knee) on injured reserve and signed defensive tackle Christian Ringo as a corresponding move to take Washington's roster spot.

UPDATE: On Saturday NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Green was downgraded to doubtful.
