Diagnosed with cervical strain and concussion

FFToday's Take: Tate was taken off the field on a stretcher in Week 11, although he later tweeted he was "good." Assuming A.J. Green remains out this week and Tate can't play, Cincinnati would be presumably start Tyler Boyd and Alex Erickson in Week 12 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's not an ideal situation, especially with Ryan Finley not looking the part of an NFL quarterback.

Ankle, contract issue

|A.J. Green says ankle is swollen. Asked if he is going to play Sunday: “Probably not.” (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: So much for the Green debut in Week 10. It's tough to gauge how much this is related to his ankle or his contract, but it's probably a little of both. With Andy Dalton on the bench, the Bengals will roll out Ryan Finley at quarterback and Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Alex Erickson at receiver against the Ravens.
| A.J. Green out for Week 6|

FFToday's Take: Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Damion Willis will continue to be used as the top receivers while Green is sidelined. The Ravens have given up the 11th most fantasy points to wide receivers.
| John Ross lands on IR|

|Bengals placed WR John Ross on the Reserve/Injured list and signed WR Stanley Morgan from their practice squad. (Adam Teicher on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Ross suffered a sternoclavicular injury during Monday’s game at Pittsburgh. He is eligible to return in 8 weeks but this move basically kills his value for the fantasy football regular season. Auden Tate should see an increased role while A.J. Green remains out.
| John Ross expected to miss multiple games|

|#Bengals WR John Ross is expected to miss multiple games with a shoulder injury suffered last night vs. the #Steelers, sources say. Could be in the range of a month or so. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: With A.J. Green still a few weeks away, the Bengals are down another receiver. Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate should be the most targeted wide receivers for Andy Dalton this week against a porous Cardinals defense.
| A.J. Green out at least through Week 6|

|Cincinnati’s wait for the return of Pro Bowl WR A.J. Green will continue on….and potentially on and on.
Green will not play Monday night against the Steelers, and he is not expected to play at least the next two weeks, either, against Arizona and at Baltimore, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It sounds like Green's return is targeted for Week 7 against Jacksonville. The Bengals have a bye in Week 9. Tyler Boyd, John Ross and Auden Tate will be the top receivers on the depth chart until Green returns.
