REPORT: MRI On A.J. Green's Knee Shows No Structural Damage

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

After a brief scare on the first day of Training Camp, A.J. Green's knee appears to have suffered no major damage to ligaments, as reported by Artrell Hawkins.

Breathe, Bengals fans. Use a paper bag, if you must. When the news through the Twitter-sphere swirled around about a possible knee injury to A.J. Green, hearts sank. Losing one the team's best players on the first day of practice? What a killer.

Head coach Marvin Lewis told us that Green should be okay and most of us waited with cautious optimism until the results of a Thursday night MRI came through. Apparently the results are in and the news that Bengals fans were hoping for showed up on the MRI: no structural damage.

This report is from former Bengals cornerback Artrell Hawkins, who said he spoke to Green shortly after the injury and likened it to Green's injury as a rookie against the Steelers. He claims to have heard the results of Green's MRI and we tend to believe him, even though he isn't a true "insider", nor does he work for the club. Why? He does get some inside information as a radio host, as a former player and as the brother of current Bengals wide receiver, Andrew Hawkins.

We'll look at this next positive sign as cautious optimism until this becomes a unanimous opinion amongst all of the writers who cover the team. While Green may miss a few days of practice, it seems as if he'll be grabbing passes from Andy Dalton much sooner than it initially appeared.
