Bengals receiver A.J. Green inactive vs Ravens

CINCINNATI (AP) Bengals receiver A.J. Green is missing a pivotal AFC North game against the Baltimore Ravens because of an injured right big toe.

The Pro Bowl receiver is inactive for the third consecutive game with the injury, suffered during a season-opening win in Baltimore. The Ravens lead the division.

Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict is back in the starting lineup despite a strained neck that limited him in practice during the week. He's missed two games because of concussions.

Cornerback Leon Hall also is in the starting lineup. He had to leave a 27-0 loss to Indianapolis last Sunday with a back injury.

The Ravens had already ruled out defensive end Chris Canty (wrist) and tight end Owen Daniels (knee).
