Sanu caught three passes on seven targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 26-10 playoff loss to the Colts.

With star pass-catcher A.J. Green out Sunday, Sanu was the only Bengals' wideout to record a catch in the Bengals' disappointing payoff exit. Sanu finished the 2014 regular season with 56 catches for 790 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games and both he and Green are in line to reprise their roles next season as the Bengals' starting wideouts.

Sanu caught his only target for a 16-yard gain in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Steelers.

Sanu had yet another unproductive game, catching exactly one pass for a third consecutive week. He finishes the regular season with 56 catches for 790 yards and five touchdowns, but with just 17 receptions for 162 yards and one score over the final eight games. He did a good bit of his damage while A.J. Green was sidelined by an injury, but it's not as if the Bengals are brimming with receivers, and Sanu couldn't take advantage of Green's limitation due to a biceps bruise in Week 16. Green's injury woes continued Sunday night, as the star wideout suffered a concussion late in the fourth quarter. There is thus some chance that Sanu will be the team's No. 1 wide receiver for Sunday's wild-card game against the Colts.

Sanu caught 1-of-2 targets for 16 yards in Monday's 37-28 loss to the Broncos.

Even with A.J. Green limited by a biceps injury suffered in the first quarter, Sanu fell short of 20 receiving yards for a fourth consecutive week. Jermaine Gresham easily led the team with 11 targets, followed by Giovani Bernard's five. Sanu hasn't seen more than three targets since Week 12, but he'll still have some added appeal for the regular-season finale in the event that Green's unable to play. The Cincinnati passing game draws a favorable matchup with the leaky Pittsburgh secondary.

Sanu had just one catch for four yards in Sunday's 30-0 win over the Browns.

With the rushing attack meeting little resistance from the Browns, Cincinnati rarely turned to the air, attempting just 24 passes against 45 runs. Still, it's another disappointing line from Sanu, who has now gone six straight games without topping 50 receiving yards and three straight games of only three targets. With A.J. Green fully healthy, Sanu has become a hit-or-miss fantasy prospect.

Sanu (illness), who returned to practice Thursday, is no longer listed on the Bengals' Week 13 injury report, ESPN.com reports.

With fellow wideout A.J. Green having hit stride, Sanu's upside these days is capped some, but he has managed to score in two of his last four games, upping his TD total to five (in 11 contests) in the process.

Sanu (illness) practiced fully Thursday, Geoff Hobson of bengals.com reports.

We'll revisit Sanu's status Friday, but he's now trending toward a probable designation in advance of Sunday's game against the Bucs.

Sanu (illness) didn't practice Wednesday, the Bengals' official site reports.

We'll revisit Sanu's status Thursday, though we'd imagine that the wideout should be fine by the time the Bengals' contest against the Bucs on Sunday rolls around.

Sanu had five catches on seven targets for 48 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Texans.

A.J. Green dominated the looks from quarterback Andy Dalton, catching 12 passes on 16 targets for 120 yards, but it was Sanu who caught Dalton's lone-touchdown, a six-yard score in the first quarter. After going for 125 yards in Week 8 and 95 yards and a touchdown in Week 9, Sanu has failed to reach even 50 yards in the last three games. The good news for fantasy owners is that the Bengals have the Bucs in Week 13, a team allowing the third-most passing yards per game this season.

Sanu had three catches for 23 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints.

With the Bengals opening up an early lead and Jeremy Hill running all over the Saints, Andy Dalton only attempted 22 passes. Sanu got six of those targets, his lowest total since Week 2. He'll have a good opportunity to post better numbers next week against a Houston defense that has struggled to stop opposing wide receivers.

Sanu caught 2-of-7 targets for 20 yards in Thursday's 24-3 loss to the Browns.

Andy Dalton gave Sanu and A.J. Green little chance to succeed, somehow completing just 10-of-33 passes for 86 yards. As expected, Green led the team with 10 targets, while Sanu was second with seven. Sanu's six-game streak with eight or more targets thus came to an end, though only by the slimmest of margins. As the No. 2 option in a passing game that's not nearly as bad as what we saw Thursday night, Sanu should be able to bounce back in a favorable Week 11 matchup with the Texans.
