Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green won't play next week, the star receiver told ESPN reporter Bob Holtzman.
Good news & bad news for @ajgreen_18. Told me his toe won't require surgery, but expects to miss week 7 too. Will see Doc again Friday.— bob holtzman (@BobHoltzmanESPN) October 12, 2014
Green strained the ligaments in his foot during stretches on Wednesday. He missed practice on Thursday and showed up during Friday's session in a protective boot.
This matches a Bengals.com report that said Green "is scheduled for another consult next week as the Bengals try to find out if it’s a short- or long-term problem and how long it's going to be day-to-day."
Without Green or Marvin Jones, wide receiver Mohamed Sanu posted a career day with 10 receptions for 120 yards receiving. His fourth quarter touchdown tied the game at 24 with 11:38 remaining in the game.
The Bengals will play the Colts in Indianapolis this Sunday.
