Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is doubtful for Sunday's AFC Wild Card game against the Indianapolis Colts as he recovers from a concussion, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Green did not practice on Friday, team writer Geoff Hobson reports.

He practiced on a limited basis on Thursday, going through installs and warmups. As part of the league's concussion protocol, he will need to be cleared by an independent neurologist on Saturday in order to play on Sunday.

Green was injured on a hit from Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Mitchell during the fourth quarter of Monday's Week 17 game.

He finished the season with 69 catches for 1,041 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games.

The Bengals play the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis at 1:05 p.m. Sunday. The two teams met in Week 7, a 27-0 Colts win. Green was inactive due to a toe injury.
