Sometimes, no news is good news.
That’s the hope with A.J. Green, who left Sunday’s loss to Denver with what looked like a serious foot injury, which had him in tears as he was carted off to the locker room. At the point, it seemed like a done deal he’d be done for the season, but the real concern was if this injury would be something that required surgery and an extended rehabilitation process.
The last thing the Bengals need is their best player shelved for a good portion of the offseason, especially if they’re breaking in a new head coach, something that appears more likely as the days roll on and the ugly losses mount up.
On Monday, head coach Marvin Lewis met with the media but declined to give uan update on Green’s status. However, Green was seen wearing a walking boot.

The fact that nothing has been announced yet could mean Green just suffered a reaggravation of his previous injury, which led to him missing three games.
We shouldn’t expect to see him play in the final four games now that Cincinnati is all but eliminated from playoff contention. It would be nice if Green did get to where he was healthy enough to play in one of the last games, more so to know he’s good to go for the offseason.
