Report: Bengals ‘undertaking further reviews’ with A.J. Green’s injury
The Cincinnati Bengals aren’t out of the woods yet with A.J. Green’s injury.
Green left last Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a toe injury. Despite later telling reporters he was fine, he showed up at Paul Brown Stadium in a walking boot considered a precautionary measure.
Green has battled turf toe in the past, so while he said he thought he jammed it, that is something to keep in mind as well.
Either way, the Bengals can’t afford to go without Green or even have him on the field in a limited capacity after the bye against the Saints. Wideout is a big enough problem area – one we considered it a major trade target before Tuesday’s deadline – and that was assuming Green was healthy and good to go.
The waiting game continues.
