The bye week is a time for teams to get some rest as they prepare for the second half of their schedules. For Cincinnati Bengals star wide receiver A.J. Green, it’s a time to find out whether he will need to miss an extended period of time beyond the bye week. It’s unfortunate, but it’s very true. The Bengals wideout has an appointment scheduled, and the results could be significant for the Bengals second-half of the season.
Last week, A.J. Green was spotted with a walking boot after the game in the locker room as he was suspected of suffering a toe injury. All throughout the week, the team has evaluated his situation, and he was still experiencing swelling. Fortunately, week nine is the Bengals off week where they won’t have to play, but the severity of the injury is becoming a concern.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Green will visit a foot specialist soon, which could determine the possibility of surgery. And we all know that if Green will, have to get a procedure done on his foot, that could leave him out of commission for at least multiple weeks.
