A.J. Green downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game against Browns

Browns looking for their first road win since 2015

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has been downgraded to “doubtful” to play in Sunday’s contest against the Cleveland Browns.

Joining Green as doubtful is Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick with a shoulder injury.

If Green does not play, it will be the third consecutive game he’s missed; the Bengals have lost the previous two games without their Pro Bowl receiver.

Green has been bothered by a toe injury, suffered during a game-winning drive against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Paul Brown Stadium, Oct. 28.

The Browns (3-6-1) are looking to win their first road game in more than three years, while the Bengals (5-5) are looking to keep their playoff hopes alive with a victory. But attaining a win against the Browns becomes more difficult without Green and his 45 receptions for 687 yards and 6 touchdowns this season.

In Cincinnati’s two wins against the Browns last season, Green caught 10 passes for 129 yards and a touchdown.
