Bengals' A.J. Green: Sheds walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (toe) is out of his walking boot and could be back on the practice field as soon as May or June, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Green recently spoke with Antonio Gates, who said it took four or five months to regain full range of motion after he had the same procedure done by the same surgeon in February 2008. The tight end suffered a noticeable drop-off in catches and yards that season, but he also scored eight touchdowns and didn't miss any games. With far more time to recover after Dec. 11 surgery, Green should be back to full strength before training camp, if not in time for OTAs. He said he's excited about the transition to head coach Zac Taylor, comparing Taylor's offensive principles to those of Jay Gruden. The 30-year-old wideout had his best statistical seasons under Gruden, averaging 97.5 catches for 1,388 yards and 11 touchdowns between the 2012 and 2013 campaigns. Green actually was on pace for similar numbers in 2018 until the toe injury derailed his season after Week 8.

Bengals' A.J. Green: Almost ready to shed boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (toe) said his Dec. 11 surgery went well and he will be out of his walking boot next week, Fletcher Page of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Green tried to play through a toe injury in Week 13 after a three-game absence, but he immediately suffered an aggravation and was placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter. He had at least four receptions and 58 yards in every other appearance during the 2018 campaign, piling up 46 catches for 694 yards and six touchdowns on 77 targets (9.0 YPT) in nine appearances. The impressive per-game production provides hope he can bounce back strong for his age-31 campaign while working with a new head coach (Zac Taylor) and offensive coordinator (reportedly Bill Callahan). Entering the final season of a four-year, $60 million contract, Green likely plans to discuss an extension with the Bengals. He didn't comment on his availability for OTAs or minicamp, but he did say he expects to be 100 percent healthy before Week 1, per Page.

Bengals' A.J. Green: Surgery goes as planned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Marvin Lewis said that the surgery Green underwent Tuesday to address a right foot injury went well and noted the wideout should be ready to resume on-field work during OTAs in late May, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Green played only nine games in 2018 -- the fewest in any season of his career -- but was effective as usual when he suited up, hauling in 46 of 77 targets for 694 yards (15.1 per reception) and six touchdowns. The procedure is expected to provide a permanent fix for the foot issue that limited him to just one appearance during the back half of the Bengals' schedule, so the 30-year-old can probably be selected among the top tier of receivers without too much hesitation once 2019 fantasy drafts get underway. Though Andy Dalton's (thumb) production has plateaued since he signed an extension with the Bengals in August 2014, it's expected that he'll return as the team's starting quarterback next season, which would spare Green from having to establish rapport with a new signal-caller.

Bengals' A.J. Green: Goes under knife
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (foot) underwent surgery Tuesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Though it wasn't officially announced that Green would opt for surgery the nagging right foot injury, that was always the expected outcome after the Bengals placed him on injured reserve last week. It's estimated that he'll 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.

Bengals' A.J. Green: Officially moves to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.
