The Bengals have a bye after this week’s game against the Titans, and wide receiver A.J. Green could certainly use the rest.
But he said yesterday he’s going to try to play through his toe injury, if he’s able.
“If it’s feeling good, then I’m going to go,” Green said, via Coley Harvey of ESPN.com. “If it’s not, then we’ll go from there.”
He said he originally suffered the injury early in the opener against the Ravens, but continued to play (catching an 80-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter). But last week, he made it just six plays before he had to leave the game.
He was short on specifics, saying only it was “something like turf toe, but not as bad.”
As long as Mohamed Sanu continues to catch and throw big plays, the Bengals might survive a week. But if this problem plagues Green throughout the year, it’ll take more than trick plays to fix it.
