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."
