CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

The Bengals ruled out six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green for Sunday’s game, after Marvin Lewis announced on Wednesday that Green would not play against Baltimore.

Green said last week that he wanted to play on Christmas Eve in Houston, but after traveling with the team to Houston, Green was then told that he would not play. Green then decided to fly home on Friday night, according to Marvin Lewis.

Green hasn’t played a down since he injured his hamstring on the first series of the Bengals’ 16-12 loss to the Bills on Nov. 20th. Sunday’s game against the Ravens will be the sixth straight game Green has missed due to his hamstring injury.

Green ends the 2016 season with 66 receptions for 964 yards and 4 touchdowns. He was just 36 yards shy of joining Randy Moss as the only other NFL receiver to reach 1,000 yards in each of his first six seasons.

The Bengals host Baltimore Sunday at 1 p.m. in their season finale.
