Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said A.J. Green was held out for precautionary measures after tweaking his hamstring.

The Bengals have suffered another setback at defensive tackle.

During Monday’s training camp practice, Renell Wren went down with a lower-body injury that led to him being carted off the field.

In addition, wide receiver A.J. Green had to bow out of practice early due to what looks like a minor leg issue.

Green is working his way back from an ankle injury that cost him the entire 2019 season. Now in a contract year for a second-straight season after being franchise tagged, the last thing Green needs is another injury that costs him significant time, but it doesn’t appear that’s the case here.

As for Wren, the 2019 fourth-round pick just came off the NFI list this past weekend. He’s in line for a bigger role in Year 2 after Josh Tupou opted out of the season and Ryan Glasgow was waived.

Thankfully, the team signed veteran Mike Daniels last week, but this is once again a thin position with undrafted free agent Trey Dishon being the only other defensive tackle behind Geno Atkins and D.J. Reader.

We will update this post if any more details come out...
