Green (toe) did not practice Thursday, ESPN.com's Coley Harvey reports.
We'll revisit Green's status Friday, but with another missed practice under his belt, the wideout looks iffy, at best, for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Green (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Richard Skinner of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Coach Marvin Lewis indicated earlier this week that Green has a shot to play Sunday against the Colts, though at this stage such an outcome looks like an iffy proposition. More on Green's status no later than Thursday, after the wideout's practice status is determined.

According to coach Marvin Lewis, Green (toe) has a shot to play Sunday against the Colts, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
Though there have been reports indicating that Green isn't expected to play this week, Lewis refers to the wideout as day-to-day at this stage, thus making Green's Week 7 status worth tracking in the coming days.

Green (toe) will miss Sunday's Week 7 game versus the Colts, NFL.com reports.
Green's re-aggravated toe injury kept him sidelined for the Bengals' tie over the weekend and will now force him to miss at least another game. Cincinnati's star wideout is expected to see a specialist some time this week to help determine a timetable for his return. Until then, Mohamed Sanu will continue as the Bengals' No. 1 receiver, a role he filled fantastically Sunday, with 10 receptions (on 14 targets) for 120 yards, including a 34-yard touchdown.

Green told ESPN's Bob Holtzman that his injured toe will not require surgery, but that he expects to miss Cincinnati's Week 7 game against the Colts.
Green plans to visit the doctor again Friday to check on his progress and determine how close he is to returning. The fact that he seems to be ruling himself out this early in the week obviously isn't a positive sign, but it's probably better than him trying to force the issue and risk aggravating the injury yet again. If he does miss the Colts game, his next chance to return would be Oct. 26 against Baltimore.

Green (toe) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Green and Marvin Jones (ankle) are both out Sunday, leaving Mohamed Sanu to serve as Andy Dalton's primary wide receiver, with Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher figuring to see larger roles than usual. They'll be operating against a Panthers defense that has surrendered six scores to opposing wide receivers over the last three weeks.

Green (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
Hobson's report suggests that since Green did not practice this week, the wideout is unlikely to play, a notion echoed by the Cincinnati Enquirer. Meanwhile, coach Marvin Lewis refers to Green as "day-to-day," which provides some optimism with regard to Green's prospects beyond Week 6. Fellow wideout Marvin Jones is also listed as questionable by the team after not practicing this week, but neither player seems likely to suit up on Sunday. In the event that the duo sits this weekend, Mohamed Sanu would be in line to see expanded duties, along with the likes of Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher. In any case, we'll confirm Green's status, one way or the other, as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches.

Green (toe) will not play in Sunday's game against the Panthers, ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports.
The Bengals have not officially ruled Green out as of yet, but it appears he will not be able to give a go this week after showing up at Friday's practice wearing sweats and a boot on his injured right foot. Expect the Bengals to provide an official update on Green's status when they release their final injury report of the week Friday afternoon.

Green (toe) was not present for Thursday's practice, the Bengals' official site reports.
With Green slated to meet with specialists after re-aggravating his big toe Wednesday, his absence was to be expected. At this stage, it looks as though the Bengals will be without both Green and Marvin Jones on Sunday against the Panthers. In such a scenario, Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher would be candidates to see added opportunities in Week 6, along with Mohamed Sanu.

Green, who aggravated his toe injury Wednesday, is slated to see two specialists, after which a determination will be made on how to treat the issue, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
While the report relays via coach Marvin Lewis on SiriusXM Radio that the wideout doesn't want to be shut down, Green remains iffy for Sunday's game against the Panthers, and possibly beyond that. Moreover, per NFL.com, when asked Thursday if Green was dealing with a case of turf toe, Lewis described the wideout's injury as, "a little bit more than that." With Marvin Jones also banged up, Mohamed Sanu could be in line to head the Bengals' Week 6 wideout corps, with the likes of Brandon Tate, James Wright and Dane Sanzenbacher also candidates to see added opportunities.
