Green: "I'll be fine;" Saturday's game blacked out

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green caught passes Tuesday morning and says he'll "be fine" for Saturday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

The rookie sprained his shoulder in the first half of Sunday's win at St. Louis and played the second half after a pain killing injection.

Green was not in pads during the portion of practice open to the media on Tuesday, but said the pain is lessening daily and caught a few passes in the morning.

Offensive lineman Andre Smith, who missed Sunday's game in St. Louis because of injury, was in pads and practiced with the starters on Tuesday.

The Bengals today released that Saturday's game will not sell out and will be blacked out locally.

The Bengals need wins the final two weeks and a New York Jets loss to make the playoffs.
