Coach Marvin Lewis says A.J. Green (toe) is making progress and will know if he can play later in the week.

Just a simple wait-and-see approach, folks. Nothing else we can do but watch for positive practice reports and hope for at least a questionable tag for Week 8. The Bengals won't push him to come back too early again, so you know when he's playing that he'll hopefully be back for good.

A.J. Green (toe) was heard telling a teammate in locker room that he's playing next week.

Green has played four games this season after injuring his toe in Week 1. The Bengals offense is a different animal when Green is healthy as teams will have to focus on shutting him down which opens up some of the teams other receivers and the running game.

Reggie Nelson recorded nine tackles during the Bengals' 27-0 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

The fact that the Bengals' defense was on the field for almost forty minutes in this game is the main reason that they recorded so many tackles. Nelson now has 20 combined tackles over his past two games.

Vincent Rey recorded 16 tackles during the Bengals' 27-0 loss to Indianapolis on Sunday.

Rey broke out on Sunday and totaled 16 tackles, including seven of the solo variety. He was basically quiet on defense until this game, but could see an increased role going forward.

Jermaine Gresham caught 10 passes on 12 targets for 48 yards during the Bengals' 27-0 loss to Indianapolis on Sunday.

Well, if you started Gresham in deep PPR leagues, you are probably quite happy at this point, but let's be real, he only racked up 48 yards for a total of 4.8 yards per reception. As long as A.J. Green is out, Gresham's value is bumped up slightly, but he's a low-end TE2 on his very best week.

Mohamed Sanu caught three passes on nine targets for 54 yards during the Bengals' 27-0 loss to Indianapolis on Sunday.

With A.J. Green out of action again this week, Sanu once again led the Bengals with 54 receiving yards. As long as Green is missing time, Sanu will continue to see an increase in targets and receptions and for that reason he should be owned and started in all fantasy leagues.

Jeremy Hill carried the ball four times for 15 yards during the Bengals' 27-0 loss to Indianapolis on Sunday.

Hill's performance mirrored the Bengals as a whole: absent. Given the fact that Cincinnati amassed just 135 yards of offensive, it shouldn't be surprising that Hill performed so poorly. He'll look to get back on track as Giovani Bernard's change of pace next week against the Ravens.

Giovani Bernard carried the ball seven times for 17 yards during the Bengals' 27-0 loss to Indianapolis on Sunday.

After last week's huge performance against Carolina, Bernard fell like a ton of bricks on Sunday rushing for just 17 yards with two receptions for negative yardage. Vontae Davis lit up Bernard with a huge hit early in this contest and that may have been part of the reason his day was so lackluster, but this really comes down to Cincinnati's execution. Bernard is still a very solid RB1 option and should be treated as such. He has plenty of big games ahead of him going forward.

Andy Dalton completed 18-of-38 passes for 126 yards against the Colts on Sunday.

The Cincinnati Bengals had a very tough day at the office on Sunday and that started with quarterback Andy Dalton. The Colts' defense swarmed the Bengals the entire game and they just could not make anything happen offensively. Indianapolis controlled the football for 39:43 and because of that Dalton just didn't have much of an opportunity. He will look to get back on track next weekend at home against Baltimore.

The Bengals have ruled out any chance Vontaze Burfict (neck) returns to Sunday's game against the Colts.

Burfict has suffered an injury in nearly every game this season, though in most cases he was able to return. He was not so fortunate Sunday.
