Bengals WR A.J. Green fine after tweaking knee

While we were all caught up in Percy Harvin's medical drama yesterday, another top-flight wide receiver gave us another scare. Fortunately, it was only a scare. Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green @ajgreen_18 went down during Thursday's practice and stayed down for a couple of minutes before getting up and walking under his own power. An MRI on his left knee revealed no structural damage and while head coach Marvin Lewis said Green will be held out of practice through the weekend, he also said Green is fine.

Fantasy Analysis:

Phew. Despite the fact that Green is playing with a very average quarterback, and the Bengals have no true No. 2 wide receiver, Green is a hard-to-guard force, a target monster, and a top-three fantasy WR. Specifically, Calvin Johnson and Dez Bryant are the only receivers I would draft before Green. He turns 25 next week.
