Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (toe), who is excited to work with new head coach Zac Taylor, has shed the walking boot that he's had on since December surgery on his big toe. Green has been limited by injuries three of the last five seasons, but he's excited about the new offense because it reminds him of the one he played in under offensive coordinator Jay Gruden when he had 97 catches for 1,350 yards. The 31-year-old might miss much or all of the team's offseason program, but he should be good to go for training camp and the regular season. Green's injury will cause him to fall in drafts, but he could be a fine WR2 at a decent price this fall.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (toe), who had season-ending toe surgery last year, said he will shed his walking boot in around a week. "Next step is I put on a shoe and I start bending it back more and moving it more," Green said. "The biggest thing is it's the offseason and we have time. We don't have to rush anything. The biggest thing is getting range of motion back." Because of the injury, Green had only 46 catches, 694 yards and six touchdowns in 2018. Green has had 1,000-yard seasons in six of his eight seasons in the NFL, and the only two seasons where he didn't achieve that milestone was when he was hurt. He'll be 31 heading into next season and will probably be targeted as more of a No. 2 fantasy wideout because of his injury last year, but he could easily bounce back in an offense that was decimated by injuries last season.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (toe) is expected to have season-ending surgery on torn ligaments in his toe that will sideline him for three to four months, according to a source. The good news is that he is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for organized team activities in 2019. This doesn't come as a surprise after Green was carted off in Week 13 in his first game back since Week 8. The 30-year-old had 46 catches on 77 targets for 694 yards and six touchdowns this year. He'll be 31 next summer and will be more of a WR2 coming off this injury next season. Tyler Boyd, John Ross and Cody Core will be relied on more the rest of the way with Green out. Boyd is the most attractive WR3 with Jeff Driskel under center for the last four games.
