A.J. Green (illness) returned to Bengals practice Friday.

He was just dealing with a minor bout with the flu. All is well and he will be a must-start Monday against the Broncos.

A.J. Green (illness) did not practice on Thursday.

Fortunately, we're just dealing with an illness and not another toe issue for Green. With the Bengals not playing until Monday night, it seems likely that this will run its course and he should be just fine to play against Denver.

Jermaine Gresham (toe) is back at practice on Thursday.

Gresham took the day off Wednesday to get some additional rest and his participation Thursday seems like a pretty good indication that the rest did him some good. He should be just fine for Sunday's game.

Jermaine Grehsam will visit a toe specialist Tuesday.

Gresham failed to practice all week and was declared inactive for the Bengals game this week. With no progress shown at all, the team will send him to a specialist to see if he needs to be placed on IR for the duration of the season. Ryan Hewitt would take over as the lead tight end should Gresham miss out on the final two weeks.

Carlos Dunlap recorded six tackles and one sack during the Bengals' 30-0 win over the Browns on Sunday.

Dunlap led the Bengals' defense on Sunday in what was quite an ugly game. The fifth year player now has 60 tackles and seven sacks this season and is a decent option in IDP leagues next week against the Broncos.

Mike Nugent was 3-for-3 on field goal attempts and converted three extra-point attempts against the Browns on Sunday.

A.J. Green caught five passes on 11 targets for 49 yards during the Bengals' 30-0 win over the Browns on Sunday.

Green was the only receiver that Andy Dalton looked for on Sunday, but it didn't really matter. The stud wideout was a victim of a poor quarterback on Sunday and posted just 49 receiving yards after several excellent games. You never know which Dalton is going to show up and that has a direct effect on how Green's performance will be. We expect better next week against the Broncos and due to Green's "stud status," he's a must start.

Jeremy Hill carried the ball 25 times for 148 yards with two touchdowns and caught one pass on one target for four yards in the Bengals' 30-0 win over Cleveland on Sunday.

Hill was a fantasy monster on Sunday, rushing for 148 yards and finding the end zone twice. He has solidified himself as the top option in Cincinnati's backfield and should be a great option when the Bengals travel to Denver next week. After Sunday's fantastic performance, Hill now has 877 yards on the season and has a great shot at eclipsing 1,000 yards on the season at some point during the next two weeks.

Giovani Bernard carried the ball 15 times for 79 yards and caught three passes on three targets for 24 yards in the Bengals' 30-0 win over Cleveland on Sunday.

The Bengals rushed the ball 40 times on Sunday and Bernard saw a nice chunk of that action. He averaged 5.3 yards per carry which was his best mark since October 12 against the Panthers. The Bengals are almost certain to make the playoffs and they have a dual-headed running threat. Because of that, both Bernard and Jeremy Hill will see plenty of carries during the final two games of the regular season.

Andy Dalton completed 14-of-24 passes for 117 yards and one interception against the Browns on Sunday.

This was the kind of game that makes your despise Andy Dalton. The Bengals were able to crush the Browns on Sunday, but it had nothing to do with Dalton as he was downright dreadful. We are at the point of the season where Dalton cannot be counted on to win in a do-or-die scenario. If you've been riding him all season long, it may be wise to scour your wire and find another option next week when the Bengals travel to Denver. Dalton is going to be in a very hostile environment and will likely struggle against a solid Broncos defense.
