In the middle of practice Thursday, Bengals receiver A.J. Green scared the entire Cincinnati fanbase when he fell to the ground on a deep-ball drill and didn't immediately rise. After spending time on the turf with the medical staff examining him, Green left the field reportedly without limping.

A few minutes later, here's what former Bengals cornerback and current national radio man Artrell Hawkins, tweeted.

So, that's good and bad news. The good news is that, at this very early point, it might not be a bad injury for Green. The bad news, of course, is that the Bengals wouldn't have much desire to see their most-explosive player in the trainer's room at all.

The incident occurred when Dalton threw a long pass out of bounds for Green, who was covered on the play by Terence Newman.

After practice, coach Marvin Lewis said he thought Green would be fine.
