Cincinnati Bengals wideout A.J. Green is battling a hamstring injury and was limited in practice on Wednesday according to the Bengals’ injury report. He’s been hobbled by a few minor injuries this year but will look to bounce back ahead of a Week 6 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.
Green has been underwhelming in 2020. he ranks second on the Bengals in targets with 34 but is fifth in receiving yards (119) and has yet to reach the end zone. Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins appear to be more favorable targets for rookie quarterback. Both have more catches and receiving yards.
If Green is healthy enough to play in Week 6, he’ll be faced with a tough matchup. The Colts lead the NFL in interceptions (9) and have allowed the second-fewest points (80) in the NFL this season. Green could draw Xavier Rhodes in coverage and the cornerback is having a resurgent year.
