The Cincinnati Bengals starting offense could be banged up pretty bad this week when they face the Carolina Panthers stout defense. Andy Dalton will likely be forced to use Mohamed Sanu as his number 1 receiver. The Bengals are not expected to have A.J. Green or Marvin Jones this week.
Coach Marvin Lewis said A.J. Green’s injury is a “little bit more than” turf toe. Green re-injured his toe yesterday in practice and could miss significant time with the injury.Both the Bengals’ website and NFL Network have reported that the team is considering shutting him down for a few weeks. With Marvin Jones (foot) also sidelined, Mohamed Sanu is the No. 1 wideout for Andy Dalton.
WR Marvin Jones doesn’t appear to be any closer to returning from his ankle injury, as he was wearing sweats and gym shoes during Tuesday’s practice.
