A.J. Green is expected to return at some point this season, but it won’t be this week.

Bengals coach Zac Taylor announced Monday that Green will not practice this week. That means he won’t return to the lineup against Baltimore on Sunday.

Green injured his left ankle on the first day of training camp. He underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments and got out of a protective boot a few weeks ago.

The Bengals chose not to place him on injured reserve to start the season, but he might end up missing eight weeks anyway.

Green played only nine games last season.

He is scheduled to become a free agent in March.

  1. Maybe trade is really in the works, no practice so he won’t have a setback? Happens in baseball all the time?

    My take, trade him to a contender, he is class act, would love to see him win!

  2. This is what happens when you deliberately keep a guy off the IR because you’re trying to sell tickets. You didn’t fool me Bengals. Mike Brown and Marvin Lewis did it for almost two decades. Pitiful.
