Injury Report: Green’s Status Key To Bengals’ Chances On Sunday Against Colts

Arguably the Cincinnati Bengals’ best player, wide receiver A.J. Green is iffy for Sunday’s playoff game in Indianapolis against the Colts. He didn’t practice on Friday and hasn’t cleared the league’s concussion protocol after suffering the injury in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Green can’t go, the pressure might double for the Bengals to win their first postseason contest since 1990.

Davis has never been an elite wide receiver, but he is a key special teams performer, which immediately makes him the favorite to make the team as the team’s sixth wide receiver.

Sanzenbacher An Unexpected Boost For Bears

Cutler Takes Beating, Bears Lose To Saints, 30-13

Jay Cutler crouched down on his knees, his head resting on the turf with his hands on both sides of his helmet as if his ears were ringing. That was after a blindside hit from Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins that was only the beginning of his misery in a 30-13 loss to New Orleans on Sunday.

Bernstein: Bears Still Playing With Fire

What the Bears appear to be thinking is this: our problems last year were only a matter of personnel, and we have better parts in better places. We can run this system the way it was meant to run, last year’s struggles be damned.
