A.J. Green lands on injured reserve

The season is over for receiver A.J. Green, which means the season definitely is over for the Bengals.

The team has placed the eighth-year receiver on Injured Reserve following a toe injury originally suffered in Week Eight, against the Buccaneers. He missed three games, returned for Sunday’s game against the Broncos, and then reinjured the toe.

Green’s roster spot will be filled by cornerback Davontae Harris, who has returned from the IR list.

Regarded as one of the best receivers in the NFL, Green has one year left under contract with the Bengals. It will be interesting to see whether the Bengals try to extend the deal for the 30-year-old player, whether he wants an extension, and whether the two sides can negotiate an acceptable middle ground when it comes to his value moving forward.

  1. As a Bengals fan since their inception, I feel terribly for Green. He’s the ultimate professional and deserves the chance to win a ring. Hate to see him leave the Bengals, but the man deserves better than what our pathetic ownership can give him.

    Steelers’ fan here. I, wholeheartedly, agree with your statement. Green is a great player/person, and, while I don’t like trashing other organizations, his talents are being wasted. That said, the Steelers currently have their fair share of talent being wasted too…imo Good luck next year.

  3. As a fan I love AJ, and as a fan a say trade him and Geno. Fire Marvin and let’s start over. Probably won’t get any better though considering the brown family is still making the decisions. Sigh…

    Not from Ohio, but the Bengals have had more success than most teams do recently, and most teams would be quite happy if there team was sitting pretty like the Browns. They are going to be a terror next 2-4 years.

  5. 1) The Bengals point totals have dropped drastically since AJ got hurt. It would be incredibly foolish of them to not try to resign him.
    2) As a Bengals fan (with major apathy at this point), I say let this guy go find a team he can win on. Get what you can for him, Geno, and anything else of value and blow this ship up.
    3) We all know The Bengals are going to knock someone out of the playoffs in week 17 and Mike Brown is going to extend Marvin saying “look what he was able to do at the end of the year against a good team without his QB and star WR. It’ll be different next year.”
    4) Please help me find a new team to support.

  6. PLEASE let AJ go to a winning team! The man deserves it, and NFL fans deserve to see a HOF player play for the chance at a title. And the Bengals need the picks to start the rebuild anyhow.

  7. A J to the Ravens is as good as done. Lamar and Ozzie are working on it right now. The Bengals are tanking it to get more draft picks and the Ravens are just what A.J. is looking for. You can be sure the Bengals aren’t trying to win to keep Marvin around. The Bengals ownership wants a top five pick…not a confused Marvin Lewis.

    The Bengals play the Steelers week 17. No way the Bengals win that game. Of course, if I’m the Steelers and already in the playoffs without a chance to improve my position, I may let the Bengals win knowing that Mike Brown will use that as an excuse to keep Marvin and Hue.
