CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Rookie wide receiver A.J. Green is a nominee for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week after helping lead the Cincinnati Bengals to a 20-13 win over the St. Louis Rams.
Green caught six passes for 115 yards, including a 55-yard reception from fellow rookie Andy Dalton to set up a field goal in the first quarter. He also passed 1,000 receiving yards this season and is three yards away from passing Cris Collinsworth's franchise rookie record of 1,009 yards set in 1981.
He had four catches for 94 yards in the first half before leaving with a right shoulder injury. His return was questionable but he was on the field to start the second half.
Green leads all rookies in receiving yards, receiving touchdowns (7) and yards per game (77.4).
