Bengals’ A.J. Green won’t play against Steelers on Sunday

In this June 12, 2019, file photo, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green participates during practice at the team’s facility in Cincinnati. Green has not played all season and will not be in uniform for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

At least the injury-depleted Pittsburgh Steelers won’t have to deal with a longtime nemesis in their game Sunday.

Cincinnati Bengals star receiver A.J. Green was officially ruled out of the upcoming game at Paul Brown Stadium against the Steelers. Although Green has not played all season because of an ankle injury, there has been renewed hope in recent weeks he could return.

Green has more catches (88) and receiving yards (1,178) against the Steelers than against any NFL team. Against no team, including the postseason, has he scored more touchdowns (nine).

Green might not be the only wide receiver the Bengals are without either. Second-year receiver Auden Tate is listed as questionable on the Cincinnati injury report. Tate is second on the Bengals in catches and receiving yards but spent this week in the NFL’s concussion protocol. Tate returned to practice – albeit in a limited capacity – Friday.

Also questionable is rookie receiver Stanley Morgan, who has an illness and did not practice all week.

Cincinnati rookie tight end Drew Sample (ankle) is out.
