Green's status for debut up in air after sitting out practice

A.J. Green

A setback could derail A.J.

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Wednesday that he believes wide receiver A.J.

At this point it's very unclear if Green will suit up this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

Taylor said he found out about Green's lack of availability minutes before the team started drills.

"I don't know what it does", Taylor said. "I just take it day-by-day".

The seven-time Pro Bowler has missed the first eight games of the season with an ankle injury. "He's adding to a great group".


"For me, just gotta make sure I feel comfortable going out there and pushing it", Green said, per ESPN.

The Bengals were hopeful that Green would be ready after the bye week. "Now I'm just getting it out of my mind and understanding that it's fine".

Green suffered the ankle injury back at the beginning of training camp. Right now, I'm still thinking I still can play. "I'm not really anxious about that situation".

The ninth-year player out of Georgia has dealt with injury problems over the past few years. Although Green has already missed eight games this season, the winless Bengals could have definitely used him this week, and that's because the team will be starting a rookie quarterback. He was out for seven of the final eight games a year ago with an injured toe on his right foot.

In other words, besides the ankle swelling, little is clear about Green's future - in the short and long term.
