Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis goes through limited practice
On Tuesday, Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said that running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis "looks like he's going to be fine." It looks like he was telling the truth. Green-Ellis put in a limited practice on Wednesday after sitting out Tuesday's session. He was left on the bench in Week 17 after suffering a hamstring injury during pregame warmups, but it was minor.
Barring a setback, you can safely assume that Green-Ellis will be taking on his normal workload against the Texans on Saturday. BJG-E, very unexpectedly, was a fantasy stud during the second half of the season, registering four 100-yard games and averaging more than five yards per carry during a stretch from Week 11-15. But the Texans have a strong run defense, and Green-Ellis is not a recommended option for your fantasy playoffs squad.
