Green (foot) underwent surgery Tuesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. Though the club didn't officially announce Green would opt for surgery on the nagging right foot injury, that was always the expected outcome after the Bengals placed him on injured reserve last week. He's estimated to need 3-to-4 months to recover from the procedure, putting him at risk of missing OTAs. Green should be back to full strength for training camp and well before the start of the season to reclaim his post as the Bengals' undisputed top pass-catcher.
The Bengals placed Green (foot) on injured reserve Wednesday, officially ending his season. The transaction was merely a formality after it was revealed Monday that Green would likely require surgery for his nagging right foot, which will sideline him for an estimated 3-to-4 months. The Bengals activated cornerback Davontae Harris (knee) from injured reserve to take Green's spot on the 53-man roster. With their top wideout now unavailable for the final four games of the regular season and a potential postseason run, Tyler Boyd and John Ross will serve as the clear top two options at receiver.
Green will undergo season-ending foot surgery this week that will require 3-to-4 months of recovery, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. In his attempt to end a three-game absence Sunday, Green lasted just 17 snaps on offense before aggravating his right foot. With his fate sealed for the current campaign, he'll finish with 46 receptions (on 77 targets) for 694 yards and six touchdowns in nine appearances. The aforementioned rehab timetable will allow him to be 100 percent by the time OTAs kick off in May.
Green (foot) may be placed on injured reserve after he undergoes testing Monday. Green returned from a three-game absence for Sunday's matchup with the Broncos, only to aggravate his foot after playing just 17 offensive snaps. With a playoff appearance looking all but impossible, there isn't much reason for Green to continue battling through the injury. He might be held out for the rest of the season even if he doesn't need surgery.
Green was carted off the field Sunday against the Broncos after injuring his right foot, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. It looked like Green had trouble putting weight on his foot prior to being carted off, and he was quickly ruled out for the rest of the game, so at first glance this has the looks of an issue that could force the wideout to miss time beyond Sunday.
