A.J. Green back at practice

Cincinnati Bengals star wide receiver A.J. Green is back at practice after being sidelined for almost three weeks due to a bruised knee.

Yes, he's off-limits to contact.

"I am back to 100 percent," Green told reporters "They just don't want to throw me back just like this. As the days go on, I am going to work my way back into them."

Green isn't expected to play in the preseason game after hurting his left knee during the opening practice of training camp. The Bengals will take no risks with Green, who caught 97 passes for 1,350 yards and 11 touchdowns.

"I want to play," Green said. "Just a matter of which one. So, we will see what the coaches say. I definitely want to play."
