The passing attack of the Cincinnati Bengals will be without star wide receiver A.J. Green in their Week 6 contest against the Carolina Panthers.

Green re-injured his toe during Wednesday’s practice session and was spotted in a walking boot on Friday.

Without Green the Bengals will lead on the running game with Mohamed Sanu being the No. 1 target of Andy Dalton. Dane Sanzenbacher and Brandon Tate will also be featured in the passing game.

The Bengals running back due of Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill will need to put up a strong performance if the team is to win this one.

In four games Green had 17 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns. His 18.5 yards per-catch average will be missed.
