Green moves to rehab field; Shawn Williams back at practice


Yes, A.J. Green can still move.

And bend his knees.

Green, the Bengals' resident Superman, emerged Wednesday in Clark Kent vestments to take part in rehab on another field as his teammates went through their first full-scale practice of the week in preparation for Sunday' game at Paul Brown Stadium (1 p.m.-Cincinnati's Channel 19) against the Eagles.

It was pretty much the first time Green has been seen since he strained his hamstring on the second snap of the Nov. 20 game against Buffalo. So this week makes it virtually three straight games he's been out.

Backup quarterback Andy Dalton was on the field in a stocking cap. He apparently had a stiff neck and it's not related to injury. Long snapper Clark Harris (groin) was on the rehab field, as was backup tight end Tyler Kroft (concussion) and they were marked as limited. Backup safety Derron Smith (thigh) didn't work, but starting safety Shawn William (hamstring) returned to practice after missing his first  NFL game in Baltimore and was marked as limited.

Backup tight end C.J. Uzomah (calf) also returned after a multi-week absence and was limited. Also limited after playing Sunday were left guard Clint Boling (shoulder), left end Carlos Dunlap (thigh). Defensive lineman Wallace Gilberry, fullback Ryan Hewitt (foot), and wide receiver Brandon LaFell (knee).

Pro Bowl left tackle Andrew Whitworth, sans his large beard, took a veteran's day off.

"Got tired of it. Got too long. Wifey is ready for it to go to," said Whitworth, who kept just a little bit when he shaved Tuesday. " My daughter didn't, either. She was the happiest when I got home yesterday."
