ESPN's Adam Schefter reports a December return is looking "increasingly likely" for A.J. Green.
Advice: Green is out at least the next two weeks, so this doesn't come as a surprise. He would miss three games if he isn't back this month. It's a huge concern for a Bengals team on the playoff fringes. Tyler Boyd and C.J. Uzomah are going to have featured roles until Green returns.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms A.J. Green (toe) will likely miss Week 11 against the Ravens.
Advice: Green has already been ruled out for Sunday's game with New Orleans. While Rapoport conceded there's "a chance" Green could gut it out in Week 11, the more likely scenario is that he takes another week to get healthy. Tyler Boyd will be tasked with leading the Bengals' receiving corps throughout Green's absence.
Green will reportedly be sidelined into December because of a toe injury.
Advice: Earlier in the week it was reported Green would be fine after the Bengals returned from their Week 9 bye, but now it seems he may miss several weeks.
A.J. Green (toe) missed Monday's practice.
Advice: We are awaiting further updates on Green's status, but he appears poised to miss at least Week 10. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday Green is expected to be sidelined for multiple games. Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, surgery is on the table.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports A.J. Green (toe) will still miss "at least" two games despite not requiring surgery.
Advice: Coach Marvin Lewis disclosed Monday that Green would not be going under the knife. It's excellent news, but two missed games is still a huge deal for the 5-3 Bengals. Their season could easily be decided over the next two weeks. Tyler Boyd is going to be a target monster while Green is out.
Speaking Monday, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said A.J. Green (toe) doesn't need surgery but declined to say when he might return.
Advice: Deciphering Lewis' words in person, beat writer Paul Dehner got the impression Lewis did not expect Green to miss a significant amount of time. That's decidedly different than the gloom that has been coming out of the national media. Nevertheless, Green missed Monday's practice and is looking doubtful for Week 10. At the very latest, his status will be updated Wednesday.
A.J. Green (toe) was scheduled to visit foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson during the bye week.
Advice: Green went to Green Bay to see what Anderson had to say about his swollen toe. According to Rapoport, "everything" is on the table for Green, including surgery. The star wideout's status for Week 10 can't be taken for granted. If Green misses time, it would open up targets for Tyler Boyd and C.J. Uzomah, among others.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports A.J. Green (toe) is expected to miss at least "some games."
Advice: And that's in a best-case scenario. Green is consulting with foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson to determine whether he needs surgery, which of course would knock out Green for more than "some games," and potentially threaten the rest of his season. The Bengals already lost Tyler Eifert (ankle) for the year, while John Ross (groin) has been unable to keep himself off the shelf.
