A.J. Green believed to have suffered sprained ankle

Near the end of a festive afternoon commemorating the NFL's centennial season, the Cincinnati Bengals watched A.J.

On the first day of Bengals training camp, Cincinnati saw its star receiver leave practice early.

He limped a few steps, crouched, limped a few more and then appeared to grab his mouth guard, flinging it to the ground.

Green's left shoe was removed before he departed the field. New head coach Zac Taylor is optimistic, which is a good sign.


"You don't want to assume anything, but I think we're going to be OK", Taylor said, according to NFL Network's James Palmer. A main attraction for the crowd of approximately 7,500 was watching Dalton and Green connect again. Trainers eventually helped him to his feet, and Green draped each arm over their shoulders while hobbling to the bench, where he was checked out for.

Green was carted off with an injury Saturday in Dayton, a celebratory kickoff to Bengals camp this year to honor the league's 100th season.

Green is headed into the final year of his contract at age 31, and there has been speculation that the Bengals might look to trade him to kickstart a rebuild. He injured his right foot last season and was sidelined in December with torn ligaments in a toe on the same foot, an injury that was given a three-to-four month return timetable.

"I hadn't gotten a chance to see A.J. much", Taylor said.
