Bengals' Green expected to sit Sunday

After the Bengals wrapped up practice last week, Green went back to Atlanta, where he built a house this past summer, and worked with a trainer on things such as making cuts on the ankle. "For me, just gotta make sure I gotta take care of me first before anything else".

The Cincinnati Bengals receiver told reporters Thursday that he won't play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

In other words, besides the ankle swelling, little is clear about Green's future - in the short and long term.

Alas, the setback during walkthrough will push the return at least another week. "I just take it day-by-day".

The Bengals were hopeful that Green would be ready after the bye week.

Green missed several weeks last season with a foot injury, which he promptly reinjured in his first game back. Taylor made the decision to bench Andy Dalton last week, which has set the stage for fourth-round pick Ryan Finley to make his National Football League debut against the Ravens. The veteran wideout suffered an ankle injury in training camp that forced him to miss a couple of months. "If they're anxious about me not playing or not being healthy, then there's 32 teams out there". "I don't want to get too specific, but I think he's starting to feel really confident and we're feeling confident now that he's out there".

If Green does end up leaving in free agency, it will make the Bengals look insane for not trying to deal him at the trade deadline.
