Green (hamstring) is anticipated to be ready when Cincinnati's voluntary workouts begin in late May, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green's torn hamstring kept him out of Cincinnati's final six games of this season and will prevent him from participating in this month's Pro Bowl. However, with plenty of time before the team reconvenes for voluntary workouts, Green should be healthy once the Bengals begin their preparations for the 2017 campaign. A full return this spring would ensure Green, who totaled 66 catches for 964 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games, remains an elite option at his position ahead of next season.

Green (hamstring) will not play in the Pro Bowl, Paul Dehner Jr of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green will opt to skip out on the Pro Bow in order to continue nursing a hamstring sprain he suffered in Week 11. One the league's top talents, Green registered 66 catches for 964 yards and four TDs in 10 games this season. His focus now shifts towards making a full recovery in the hopes of being ready for team activities this offseason.

Green (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green had already been ruled out for Week 17's season finale against the Ravens, so the Bengals will be able to sign offensive lineman Trey Hopkins from the practice squad with Green now on IR. The team is otherwise healthy at wideout, with Brandon LaFell, Tyler Boyd, and James Wright serving as quarterback Andy Dalton's top three options Sunday.

Green (hamstring) won't play in Sunday's season finale against the Ravens, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With TE Tyler Eifert on IR, the Bengals will close out their regular season slate minus their top two pass-catchers. The team's top receiving targets in Week 17 thus figure to be wideouts Brandon LaFell, Cody Core and Tyler Boyd, along with tight end C.J. Uzomah. Geen, who is under contract with the Bengals through 2019, will finish the 2016 campaign with 66 catches for 964 yards and four TDs in 10 games.

The Bengals confirmed Saturday morning that Green (hamstring) won't play in the team's evening contest against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, the team wouldn't confirm that Green will also be held out in Week 17, with no announcement on that front expected until after this weekend. With both With Green and Tyler Eifert unavailable Saturday, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd profile as the Bengals' top pass-catchers in Week 16.

Green (hamstring) is not expected to play in either of the Bengals' final two games, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the ESPN report, as well as Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, Green -- who has not played since Week 11 -- is not on track to play Saturday night against the Texans, a notion that we expect to confirm once the Bengals' inactives are released in advance of their 8:25 ET kickoff. With Green (as well as Tyler Eifert ) not in line to be available Saturday, look for Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd to serve as the team's top pass-catchers in Week 16.

Though Green (hamstring) has indicated that he's inclined to play Saturday night against the Texans, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that the Bengals aren't "so sure they can count on it."

EDGE Analysis

While listed by the team as a full practice participant Friday, the wideout heads into the contest with an official questionable designation. With the 5-8-1 Bengals eliminated from playoff contention, there's no compelling reason to rush the star wideout back, if he's at less than full health, with the report raising the possibility that Green could be held out of action Saturday. The Bengals' 8:25 ET kickoff poses some logistical issues for fantasy owners inclined to wait things out on Green, though with four teams playing on Sunday and two on Monday, last-minute plug-in options could be available to those with the ability to make late-week roster adjustments.

Green (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday night's game against the Texans, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green -- who has been limited at practice this week -- has maintained that he's healthy enough to play this weekend, and it's expected that he'll be in uniform Saturday. It remains to be seen how close to a full workload he'll be up for in such a scenario, but the Bengals offense would certainly benefit from the star wideout's anticipated return, with top tight end Tyler Eifert sidelined by a back injury.

Green (hamstring) remained limited at practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

That said, the wideout has indicated that he feels healthy enough to play Saturday night against the Texans. While we suspect that Green will give it a go this weekend in the absence of any setbacks, it seems likely that the wideout will still end up being officially listed as questionable on the Bengals' final Week 16 injury report.

Green (hamstring) was excited by his practice Thursday and said he'll play Saturday against the Texans, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green even asserted that he wouldn't be out there if he thought that there was any risk of re-injury. The Bengals have nothing left to play for, so if there's any sort of twinge, they will have to play it cautiously. But that lack of regular season incentive also skews in favor of playing Green, suggesting that the possibility of such a twinge isn't terribly high.
