The Bengals were without A.J. Green vs. the Baltimore Ravens in Week 8, but they could have him back vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9.

According to NFL Network reporter Stacey Dales, Green could go next week with the help of a specialty shoe.

Green missed his third game of the season on Sunday when Cincinnati reclaimed first place following their 27-24 win over the Ravens. The big test for Green, who has ligament damage under his big toe, will be this Wednesday when the team practices for Jacksonville.

If it goes well, then the fourth-year receiver will play this Sunday when Cincinnati hosts the Jaguars.

Following Sunday's game, Green spoke to reporters and said that he expects to play next week. Green spent last week on the rehab field and didn't come away with any soreness.

Green has played four games this season, posting 17 receptions and 314 yards receiving. Despite missing three games, Green is still the second-leading receiver (in terms of yards) to Mohamed Sanu, who leads the team with 30 receptions, 408 yards receiving and three receiving touchdowns.
