CBS announced earlier this week that Trent Green is filling in for Charles Davis as color analyst for its broadcast of Saturday's playoff game between the Bengals and Titans in Nashville.

Retired NFL player and sports broadcaster Trent Green arrives on the Red Carpet for the Waiting for Wishes Celebrity Waiters Dinner hosted by Kevin Carter and Jay DeMarcus on April 16, 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Retired NFL player and sports broadcaster Trent Green arrives on the Red Carpet for the Waiting for Wishes Celebrity Waiters Dinner hosted by Kevin Carter and Jay DeMarcus on April 16, 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Davis will miss the game because of COVID-19 protocols. Green will join play-by-play broadcaster Ian Eagle in the booth, with Evan Washburn as sideline reporter and Gene Steratore as a rules analyst.

In October, Green spoke at length during CBS' broadcast of the New York Jets' 34-31 win against the Bengals about an unnecessary-roughness penalty called against Bengals defensive back Mike Hilton on 3rd-and-11 that resulted in a crucial first down for the Jets with less than two minutes left in the game, insisting that the Jets' Ty Johnson initiated the helmet-to-helmet hit.

Green and Kevin Harlan called CBS' broadcast of quarterback Joe Burrow's regular-season debut with the Bengals in Sept. 2020 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Before the game, former Bengals quarterback Boomer Esiason interviewed head coach Zac Taylor on "The NFL Today" - "to relive Cincinnati’s first playoff win in 31 years and discuss his relationship with quarterback Joe Burrow."
