A.J. Green not at open portion of Bengals practice

The road to wide receiver A.J. Green‘s first appearance of the 2019 season took an unexpected turn on Wednesday.

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor told reporters during his press conference that Green is on track to make his debut after several months spent rehabbing an ankle injury. The plan to get Green to the field for Sunday’s game included a full practice on Wednesday, but that’s not how things played out.

Multiple reporters at the open portion of Bengals practice noted that Green was not present.

It’s possible Green joined the team on the field later in the session and the release of the injury report later on Wednesday will let everyone know if that’s the case. If he didn’t, that will create some doubt about Taylor’s proclamation about Green’s status for this Sunday.

  1. As a Bengals’ fan I am sick of Green’s foot. He looked ready to go a few weeks back. He was practically doing cartwheels on the sideline last week. Either you want to play and help you team or you don’t. This excuse that the team is so bad there’s no need to play is BS. That’s when they need you most.

    Waiting for a contract extension?

    Is AJ just the quieter version of AB?

  3. He’s never done or said anything to warrant anyone questioning whether or not he’s hurt. He’s the first guy there, the last one out and he’ll play when he’s healthy enough to play.

    Just because he isn’t as stupid a AB doesn’t mean he is not faking. He is playing his cards right. Your blind acceptance shows he is doing a good sell job. Ankles don’t take 4-5 months to heal, especially ones that team Drs day will take 6-8 weeks.

    Except this is the guy that came back from injury late in 2016 and the team refused to play him because they were playing for nothing and he absolutely lost his mind and flew himself home before the game. The dude wants to play football. Maybe If they were playing for something he would be willing to rush it for them, but if he’s healthy he’ll play. I hate this team, always will, but AJ Green is everything a pro athlete should be.
