Bengals WR A.J. Green Gives Update in Attempt to Return from Injury

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green admitted he still has “a little ways to go” in his rehab from offseason ankle surgery according to Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

With each passing week it seems stranger that the Bengals did not place Green on injured reserve to start the season but they clearly did not anticipate him being out this long. Green has been out since late July but hope surfaced about his return when he returned to practice on a limited basis last week.

That hope dimmed, unfortunately, when Green did not practice either Wednesday or Thursday this week and it seems clear he will not be on the field this Sunday for the Week 7 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Bengals then travel to London for a game against the Los Angeles Rams before their bye week mercifully arrives in Week 9. At this point, Week 10 may be the most logical date for Green’s return.

With Green scheduled to become a free agent next spring, there has been speculation that he has tired of the Bengals’ perennial losing and is less than motivated to put his health and career on the line for a winless and rudderless Bengals team.

And there seem to be some strange things going on in Cincy with the Bengals’ medical staff and some injured players in light of the reports of left tackle Cordy Glenn’s dispute with the team over his season-long concussion.

Dealing Green to a contender before the trade deadline seems to be a logical move for both sides-but Green needs to show he is healthy enough to play.
