The Cincinnati Bengals' recent struggles have been mostly because of their defense, but some of their woes can be attributed to not having their best player healthy.
A.J. Green is one of the two or three best receivers in football when he's healthy, something he hasn't been since Week 1, when he suffered a toe injury during the team's game vs. the Ravens. He's essentially missed three games since then, after being inactive vs. the Colts in Week 7.
However, a Week 8 return vs. the Baltimore Ravens with the AFC North lead on the line could be possible after he had a good meeting with a foot specialist Friday.
From @RapSheet and me: Bengals WR AJ Green visited Dr. Anderson on Friday in NC. Prognosis was positive. Has a shot to play next week.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 19, 2014
It's also been reported by the mothership that there's a chance Green plays vs. Baltimore, so this latest report jives with that.
Considering Green caught the game-winning score vs. the Ravens in Week 1, having him back for this matchup would be a huge boost to the offense.
