Brown carries Bengals offense

Bengals kicker Josh Brown made two field goals and an extra point during Cincinnati’s 19-13 loss at Houston in an AFC Wild Card matchup Saturday night. Brown, who remained in the lineup in place of injured kicker Mike Nugent, connected on attempts of 34 and 47 yards.

Green-Ellis back at practice

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis was back at practice Wednesday in preparation for the Wild Card game at Houston. Green-Ellis missed Week 17 with a hamstring injury, which tightened on him in pregame warmups, and did not practice Tuesday. He is expected to be fine against the Texans.
