A.J. Green has not played a game since Dec. 2, 2018. He has played only nine games the past two seasons.

Green tore ligaments in his left ankle on the first day of training camp practice last summer, requiring surgery. He practiced only once last season, as a limited participant, before the ankle swelled again.

The Bengals finally placed him on injured reserve late last season.

Green’s health has returned to 100 percent, coach Zac Taylor said Wednesday.

“Everything’s been positive with A.J.,” Taylor said on a conference call broadcast on the team’s social media account. “He’s fully healthy and is working hard. He’s been in Atlanta. It’s all been positive in that regard.”

The Bengals used the franchise tag on Green, who has yet to sign it.

  1. Considering his draft position and hype of him coming out of Georgia, A.J. has been a bust.

  2. Faked it last year and got paid for not playing. Played his cards excellently.

  3. Bengals would have been better off letting go and getting the compensatory pick for him. His days as a premier player are long gone.
