Green secured five of eight targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 18-16 Wild Card playoff loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

The Pro Bowl receiver salvaged a frustrating night with what at the time appeared to be a game-winning 25-yard strike from A.J. McCarron. Green and McCarron otherwise had some trouble getting in synch under the game's adverse weather conditions, and it resulted in Green's first game under 100 yards receiving in three meetings with the Steelers this season. Despite not having the benefit of Andy Dalton throwing him the ball during the last four games of the 2015 campaign, Green finished with an outstanding 86 receptions for 1,297 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Green caught four of five targets for 34 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

After scoring just four touchdowns in the first 10 games of the season, Green really came on at the end, scoring seven times in the final six games. His yardage totals have been down in the last three weeks, a direct result of AJ McCarron being under center instead of Andy Dalton, but the latter has a shot to return from his broken thumb for the playoffs, which would certainly boost Green's value. Green finished the regular season with 86 catches on 132 targets for 1,297 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Green caught five passes (on nine targets) for 57 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Green opened the scoring with an impressive five-yard touchdown catch along the sideline during the first quarter Monday. That marked Green's ninth touchdown of the season, and his fifth in as many games. Now, he'll prepare for Sunday's regular season finale against a Ravens team he torched to the tune of 10 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns back in Week 3.

Green (back) is not listed on the Bengals' Week 16 injury report.

EDGE Analysis

Assuming no setbacks as the week rolls along, Green's availability for Monday night's game against the Broncos looks secure.

Green (back) appears on track to play Monday night against the Broncos, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green, who injured his back this past Saturday, and was then hampered some in Sunday's win over the 49ers, was limited to one catch (on three targets) for 37 yards in the contest, while being on the field for 38 of the Bengals' 64 snaps on offense. Per the report, Green "is dealing with a bruise, and there are no structural concerns," though it's possible that the wideout's practice participation this week could be affected by the issue.

Green (back) caught just one of three targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 24-14 win at San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Green hurt his back Saturday, but was considered probable. Although he was able to play Sunday, he was downgraded to questionable during pregame warmups, according to Cincinnati.com . Without knowing his snap count, it's reasonable to assume he didn't play much in the second half, with the Bengals leading 21-0 at halftime. Assuming he's OK for next week's game against Denver, he'll probably match up with CB Chris Harris, who was having a good season until he was torched by Antonio Brown on Sunday to the tune of 16 receptions for 189 yards and two touchdowns.

Green (back) is active for Sunday's contest in San Francisco, Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Making a late appearance on the injury report Saturday, Green is in search of a third consecutive 100-yard performance, which would mark the second-longest streak of his career (five games in 2013). With Tyler Eifert (concussion) out of commission for the second time in three contests, expect Green to be on the receiving end of numerous passes from AJ McCarron once again.

Green (back) was added to the injury report Saturday as probable for Sunday's game against San Francisco, ESPN NFL Nation's Coley Harvey reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green's availability for Sunday's game is evidently in little or no question, and given that fact he remains a strong on-paper play against the 49ers, especially with Tyler Eifert's absence leaving up more red-zone targets for grabs.

Green hauled in six passes off of nine targets for 132 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

When Andy Dalton exited Sunday's game with a hand injury, all eyes were on A.J. McCarron and how he'd utilize weapons such as Green. It took the young quarterback all of two drives to answer, lofting a 66-yard touchdown bomb to Green. In just under three quarters, McCarron and Green connected on five passes for 115 yards - more than Green had tallied in all but three whole games this season. With Dalton out and Green's main competition for targets, Tyler Eifert, dinged up again, expect Green to be heavily relied on as McCarron's security blanket.

Green snagged five passes for 128 yards off of six targets in Sunday's win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Green topped 100 yards for the third time this season and the first time since Week 8. He had five such games in 13 outings in 2014. The star receiver scored just once in the seven games between Week 4 and Week 12, but has found the end zone three times in the last two weeks. Two of those, however, have come since Tyler Eifert left last Sunday's game with a stinger. It will be interesting to see whether Green will be able to keep the scoring up once Eifert returns to the lineup.
