Thursday update: Green, Dalton full go; Peko, Dunlap sit

Posted Nov 24, 2011

For the first time since he hyperextended his knee against the Steelers 11 days ago, Bengals rookie wide receiver A.J. Green practiced full go during the club’s Thanksgiving morning workout at Paul Brown Stadium.

Quarterback Andy Dalton (throwing shoulder) also participated in all of practice after he was limited Wednesday. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth (thigh) and right end Michael Johnson (shoulder) also went full after being limited Wednesday.

The concern is on the defensive front, where tackle Domata Peko (foot) and end Carlos Dunlap (hamstring) missed their second straight days.

Peko, linchpin of the Bengals run defense that is ranked third in the NFL allowing yards per rush, is coming off a big game in Baltimore in which he helped force fourth-quarter punts on a pair of third-and-one stops. Dunlap, the club's best pass rusher, struggled in Baltimore coming back from a hamstring that knocked him out of the Pittsburgh game the week before.

Tight end Donald Lee (foot) apparently had a setback because he didn’t practice Thursday after being limited Wednesday. The banged-up DBs look to be coming around. Cornerback Adam Jones (groin) was limited again and cornerbacks Nate Clements (knee) and Brandon Ghee (groin), and safety Chris Crocker (knee) were limited after not working Wednesday.
