Green (toe) will play Sunday against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Green has missed the last two games due to the injury, but he was listed as questionable for Sunday's game after being able to practice in a limited capacity all week. It's an excellent week to return, as the Jaguars are allowing 267.4 passing yards per game this season, the sixth-most in the NFL.

Green (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com.
While Green's questionable listing is an acknowledgment that he isn't a lock to play, things do appear to be trending in that direction after the wideout turned in a full week of limited practice participation. "A.J. has looked fine," coach Marvin Lewis said Friday. "He wants to play. He's telling everybody he wants to play. If everything stays the way it is, he'll play." We'll track Green's status as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but at this stage, it appears that it would take a pre-game setback to keep him out of action this weekend.

Green (toe) suited up for Friday's practice, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' website reports.
It's not clear exactly how much work Green was able to get in Friday, but the important thing to note is he was able to take the field for the third day in a row. The Bengals will provide an update on Green's status at some point Friday, but for fantasy owners and Bengals fans should be optimistic about his chances of returning to action this week.

Green (toe) practiced again Thursday, the Bengals' official site reports.
Green's continued practice participation is encouraging, though it remains to be seen how he will officially be listed by the team in advance of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, which fortunately for Week 9 fantasy lineup planning purposes, is a 1:00 ET kickoff.

Green (toe) was spotted at practice Wednesday, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. reports.
Dehner relays that Green "looked pretty crisp running routes" Wednesday, with the Bengals likely to list the wideout as a limited participant once their official practice participation/injury report for the session is released.

Green (toe) plans to practice Wednesday.
Green will test his injured toe during warm-ups and if all goes well, the star wideout will practice Wednesday. Should he do so, Green could take another step toward playing this weekend against the Ravens. No matter, Green's fantasy owners should still keep an eye on his progress throughout the coming days.

Green said after Sunday's game against the Ravens that he will return from his toe injury to face the Jaguars in Week 9, ESPN.com reports. "I'm going to be back," Green said. "I'm going to practice some this week and see how it goes. Like I've said, it's probably not going to be 100 percent like I want it, but as long as I'm 80 percent, I can play at a high level. I'm good."
Green suffered the toe injury early in the season and aggravated it in practice ahead of the team's Week 6 game against the Panthers, forcing him to be carted off the practice field. Mohamed Sanu has filled in very well for Green, but he'll move back to his No. 2 spot on the depth chart when the latter returns. It's a great time for Green to get back on the field, as the Bengals will face a Jaguars defense allowing the fourth-most passing yards per game this season.

Green (toe) said Sunday that he feels like he is about 80 percent healthy, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. reports.
Green was inactive again Sunday, but he's getting closer to a return. "I was at 40 percent last week and I feel about 80 percent today," Green said. "I haven't had any soreness after I've worked out." The Bengals' tentative plan last week was to have Green return Nov. 2 against the Jaguars, and his comments Sunday seem to indicate that he's on target to hit that goal.

In Green's continued absence Sunday, Mohamed Sanu is in line to see expanded duties once again, along with fellow wideouts Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher, while tight end Jermaine Gresham also a candidate for added looks.
