Coach Marvin Lewis said Wednesday that he expects Green (toe) to play Sunday against the Titans, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Green did not practice Wednesday and was considered questionable for Sunday, so this statement by his coach is a bit surprising. This declaration does not mean Green will definitely play, but it is great news for fantasy owners hoping to play their star this week. Green's playing status will become even clearer if he is able to practice at least once this week.

Coach Marvin Lewis indicated Monday that Green's right toe issue is not a long-term injury, Geoff Hobson of bengals.com reports.
That said, Green's status for Week 3's contest against the Titans has yet to be determined, and with the Bengals on bye in Week 4, it's possible that the team could err on the side of caution with the wideout this weekend. While such an outcome is speculative at this stage, added clarity with regard to Green's Sunday prospects should emerge once the team resumes practicing later this week.

The Bengals' official site suggests that Green' right toe injury isn't serious, though the wideout's Week 3 status is unclear.
The report suggests that Green's MRI came up negative, but with the Bengals on bye in Week 4, the team could decide to play it safe with the wideout next weekend. At this point, such an outcome is speculative, but on the plus side, it appears as though Sunday's apparent aggravation of the issue that kept Green out of practice Thursday, is not a major one. We'll let you know if that assessment changes.

Green (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Falcons, ESPN.com's Coley Harvey reports.
Green was labeled as probable heading into Sunday's contest, so there was never any serious doubt that he'd require any time off as a result of the foot injury. He should be in line for his usual slate of targets Sunday as he takes on Atlanta's porous secondary.
