Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green back at practice
It was the first time he participated since re-aggravating his toe injury three weeks ago. He has missed three straight games since then, but expects to play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Green first suffered the injury in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons.
"I feel good," Green said after practice. "We're going to do a little bit [Thursday] and see how it goes."
"I'm not going to take any kind of approach. I'm just going to play as hard as I can and see what happens."
In four games this season, Green has 17 receptions for 314 yards and two touchdowns. Mohamed Sanu has been starting in his place, catching five receptions for a career-high 125 yards in Sunday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens.
While Green is back at practice, several other Bengals players are sat out Wednesday, including Darqueze Dennard, Kevin Zeitler, Mike Pollak, Domata Peko, Rey Maualuga, Giovani Bernard and Tyler Eifert.
The Bengals are 4-2-1 and first in the AFC North. They play the 1-7 Jaguars at home on Sunday.
