It’s still hard to know for sure whether or not Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (hamstring) will ultimately be able to play in Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers but according to the team’s Thursday injury report, he was limited for a second-consecutive day during practice.
Green, who is recovering from a Grade II hamstring tear that he suffered against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11, returned to practice for the first time on Wednesday.
Also limited again on Thursday for the Bengals were guard Clint Boling (shoulder), safety Derron Smith (thigh), and tight end C.J. Uzomah (calf). Sitting out Thursday’s practice were defensive end Wallace Gilberry (calf) and defensive end Margus Hunt (not injury related). It’s not looking like Gilberry will play Sunday against the Steelers as he’s missed the Bengals last two games with his injury.
After sitting out Wednesday’s practice, Bengals cornerback Adam Jones (ankle) and wide receiver James Wright (knee) both practiced fully on Thursday. Also practicing fully were defensive end Carlos Dunlap (neck), long snapper Clark Harris (groin) and wide receiver Brandon LaFell (knee).
