A.J. Green unlikely to play Sunday for Cardinals vs. Panthers


It has not been the season A.J. Green or the Arizona Cardinals had hoped for when he re-signed a one-year deal with the team following an 800-plus yard season.

In three games played, Green has five receptions for 29 yards. Now, he's dealing with a bone bruise that is expected to keep him out of Week 4's crucial matchup with the Carolina Panthers.

When asked about Green's availability, Kliff Kingsbury had the following to say:

"It looks doubtful unless he really, really comes around he's probably not going to be available."

The Cardinals have a size issue at the receiver position, assuming Green does miss Sunday's contest. The team currently does not have a receiver over 5-9 on the active roster.

More than that, however, is the lack of depth at the receiver position, as the team continues to be without DeAndre Hopkins. Second-year Rondale Moore, however, is progressing the right way, as he was limited in practice Wednesday.

There is currently no time set on Green's return from injury.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Panthers are down, but not out, entering their bye - thanks in large part to the emergence of D'Onta Foreman. The journeyman running back has eclipsed 100 yards rushing in four of Carolina's last six games, and the Panthers (4-8) remain in contention in the weak NFC South after finding an identity on offense. Carolina is 1 1/2 games behind division-leading Tampa Bay (5-6) entering the weekend.
