The latest piece of A.J. Green news is not exactly a promising one.
After missing game No. 14 of 16 yesterday, the Bengals’ star receiver met with Dr. Robert Anderson, who is a foot specialist based on Green Bay, Wisconsin, per Adam Schefter.
Bengals’ WR AJ Green visited today with noted foot specialist, Dr. Robert Anderson, per source. If Green is in Green Bay today with a foot doctor, hard to imagine he’ll return this season. He’s scheduled to be a free agent this off-season.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 16, 2019
For the past several weeks, head coach Zac Taylor has conveyed the same message regarding Green: he wants to play. Green has not practiced this year when he hasn’t felt like he was ready to come back to the field, and like Schefter said, if he’s meeting his foot doctor this late in the season, it makes it all the more unlikely that he’ll get a positive prognosis on his condition.
During his press conference today, Taylor noted that he’ll speak with Green before providing an update on his status. The subject of this meeting will probably be the center of the conversation.
Zac Taylor will talk to AJ Green this week before giving an update vs. Miami.— Lindsay Patterson (@LndsPatterson) December 16, 2019
Despite what most fans want, Taylor and the Bengals want to end the regular season with as many wins as possible. If Green gets good news and is able to practice this week, he’ll practice and prepare to make his debut. If not, he won’t. By Wednesday, more clarity should arrive.
