The Bengals have had no luck in the win column in 2019 thus far, but those chances will hopefully increase this week as it’s been announced by the team that wide out A.J. Green will return to the lineup for the first time this year.

Green has been on the sideline the entire season after suffering an ankle injury in the very first practice of the season.
The seven-time Pro Bowler has racked up 602 receptions for 8,907 career yards and 63 touchdowns.
There was rumors about the Bengals putting Green on the trade market, and Green, who is set to be a free agent at year’s end, said before the trade deadline that he didn’t want to be franchised or get just a one-year deal.
“Give me a long-term (contract) or just let me go,” Green said back on October 30th.
For now, he will get his chance to be back in the lineup and be able to build on his already strong resume as a receiver.
