Cincinnati Bengals star wide receiver A.J. Green has been dealing with a toe injury for the past couple of weeks. Here is the latest on the status of the star NFL wide receiver.

Green, somewhat surprisingly, was listed as doubtful for today's game against the Baltimore Ravens. He made the trip with the rest of the team and attempted to go through workouts this morning to see if he could play.

Unfortunately, Green is not yet ready to come back from the injury.

The Bengals' star wide receiver has officially been ruled OUT for today's game against the Ravens.

NFL.com had more on the status of Green moving forward:

Officially listed as doubtful, Green made the trip to Baltimore for Sunday's matchup with the Ravens but won't play in the AFC North divisional game. Green worked out before the game, but the team ultimately decided to keep him out for another week.

The Bengals won the first go-around against the Ravens back in Week 2, and Green was instrumental in the 34-23 victory by scoring three touchdowns.

Green suffered a toe injury in Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and hasn't suited up since. After a timely Week 9 bye, Green was out for last week's 51-14 loss to the New Orleans Saints, where the Bengals amassed less than 300 yards of total offense. Although his status today will ultimately be a game-time decision, Green's return is crucial for a Bengals late-season turnaround.

The Bengals will be missing two wide receivers today, as both Green and Ross are out against the Ravens.

The Bengals and the Ravens are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. While Green is out for Cincinnati, the Ravens will be starting rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson. It will be the former Louisville star's first career NFL start.

Cincinnati and Baltimore are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. The game will be on CBS.
