- ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports WR A.J. Green‘s value around the league is seen more in the range of a second-round pick unless another team gets desperate.
- Fowler adds Green’s ankle injury is a complicating factor, as a team would need to see Green healthy and in action to feel comfortable parting with a significant asset via trade.
- The Bengals are also one of the most conservative franchises in the league and don’t tend to do big deals, making a trade of Green unlikely per Fowler.
- Fowlers lists the Patriots, 49ers, Packers and Bills as the top candidates to trade for Green if the Bengals make him available.
- While the Bengals and Green have been working on a contract extension for some time, Fowler believes Green will be ready to test free agency following the season as he’d likely be the top player on the market.
- The Athletic’s Jay Morrison writes that it’s hard to envision a scenario where Bengals OT Cordy Glenn ever plays for the team again and that the situation has a good chance of ending by being litigated via grievance.
- Morrison says the few interactions the media has seen between Glenn and his teammates have been icy and it appears like Glenn is on an island by himself from the rest of the team.
- Glenn lost an additional $426,471 because of his one-game suspension this week. The team already fined him $200,000. (Morrison)
- The Cincinnati Bengals officially ruled out T Cordy Glenn (not injury related), WR A.J. Green (ankle), CB William Jackson (shoulder), CB Dre Kirkpatrick (knee), DE Carl Lawson (hamstring), G John Miller (groin), and T Andre Smith (ankle) for Week 7 and have DE Carlos Dunlap (knee) listed as doubtful.
- The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec writes that while another trade is certainly possible for the Ravens to bolster a position like pass rush, Baltimore only has $2 million in cap space and is running low on draft picks they’d be willing to move.
- New Ravens CB Marcus Peters will likely play a prominent role in Sunday’s game despite being traded less than a week ago from the Rams, per HC John Harbaugh: “He’s going to play. He’s probably going to play a lot. We’re going out there with all our best weapons.” (Jamison Hensley)

- The Baltimore Ravens officially ruled out CB Anthony Averett (ankle), WR Marquise Brown (ankle), CB Maurice Canady (thigh), LB Patrick Onwuasor (ankle) and T Ronnie Stanley (knee) for Week 7 and have CB Jimmy Smith (knee) listed as doubtful.
