According to NFL Insider Adam Schefter, A.J. Green will make his return to the lineup today.

It’ll be a welcomed sight for fans and Bengals players alike.  Green has been in-and-out of games all season, so let’s hope the extended rest has been enough to put to bed his nagging toe issue.  Green did acknowledge his toe may be a bother all year, so the Bengals will likely monitor their star closely.

A.J. Green said earlier this week that when he returns, he expects to play his normal amount of snaps.

This may be the case, but if the Bengals are prudent, it may be wiser to allow Green to use this as a “warm-up” game of sorts, especially if the Bengals can build a substantial lead against the lowly Jaguars.

The Bengals’ offense will be without Giovani Bernard today, so the offensive weapon shuffling continues despite Green’s return.  Hopefully they can escape the week without any further setbacks as they are on a short week following this game.  The Bengals will face the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night at Paul Brown Stadium.
