Oct 11, 2019 8:47 AM

A.J. Green has yet to play this season because of an ankle injury, but his name has been mentioned in trade rumors as the Cincinnati Bengals remain winless.

Zac Taylor tried to squash the rumors on Thursday.

"I've heard the speculation. We are not trading that guy," Taylor said.

Green told the Bengals' website that his phone has been buzzing since his name first circulated in trade rumors.

"I tell everybody I haven't heard anything," the wide receiver said. "I don't fantasize about anything like that. I'm just trying to get healthy and go from there."

Joe Mixon Takes Blame For Cincinnati's Slow Start

Sep 19, 2019 9:45 AM

The Cincinnati Bengals are winless through two games and Joe Mixon is taking the blame.

Mixon has rushed for just 27 yards this season, averaging 1.6 yards per carry.

"I take it personally on me," Mixon said. "These two performances I've been displaying have been terrible. You call me the peon right now. I've got to go home and do some re-evaluating, some looking at the man in the mirror, which is me, and got to step up, making something happen."

Just last year, Mixon finished fourth in the NFL in rushing (1,168 yards) in just 14 games and scored nine touchdowns while averaging more than 100 yards from scrimmage.
