Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green’s left knee injury suffered during practice Thursday does not appear to be serious.
“I think he’s fine,” Lewis said, per Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. “They went inside just to take a look, “but I think he’s fine.”
The Cincinnati Enquirer has a photo of Green’s left leg twisting on an incomplete pass during a drill.
On Twitter, former Bengals defensive back Artrell Hawkins, now a Fox radio host, said that Green told him that the injury reminded him of the knee injury he suffered in 2011 vs. Pittsburgh catching a TD pass. He would miss the following week’s game at Baltimore but return after missing just one game.
“Spoke w AJ says he believes he’ll be ok,” Hawkins tweeted. (A nod to the Enquirer for pointing this out.)
Green, 24, caught 97 passes for 1,350 yards and 11 TDs in 2012 for Cincinnati, earning Pro Bowl honors for the second in as many NFL seasons.
