Green-Ellis to visit Cincinnati Sunday, Monday

BenJarvus Green-Ellis will visit Cincinnati on Sunday and Monday to meet with the Bengals, according to a source.

Green-Ellis, 26, is an unrestricted free agent. He rushed for 667 yards and 11 touchdowns last season after breaking the 1000-yard mark and scoring 13 touchdowns in 2010.

Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2008, Green-Ellis has never fumbled in his four-year NFL career. He has been the leading rusher in New England for the last two seasons, but the Patriots drafted two running backs -- Shane Vereen (second round) and Stevan Ridley (third round) -- last spring who could be expected to play bigger roles.

The Bengals' leading back, Cedric Benson, is also an unrestricted free agent so Cincinnati may be looking for his replacement.

Patriots won’t have to deal with Bills WR Sammy Watkins on Sunday.

FOXBORO - Scratch the estimable Sammy Watkins from the Bills roster for Sunday. 

Buffalo shared via Twitter that their long, tall wideout is out for Sunday with a foot injury. Also down are wideout Greg Salas and left tackle Cyrus Kouandijo.

The Bills' starting left tackle Cordy Glenn has been dealing with an ankle injury that caused him to miss last week's game. 

Robert Woods will be the Bills best outside threat with Watkins taking Sunday off. The Bills' talented corner Ronald Darby is also trying to get back this week from a hamstring injury that caused him to miss last week's game with Arizona.
