Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk says the diagnosis on A.J. Green's injury is not turf toe, but a ligament strain instead.
Updated diagnosis on A.J. Green: Ligament strain in foot. Not turf toe.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) September 14, 2014
Neither injury is good news, but until we know the extent of the injury, it's impossible to know for how long he'll be out. Florio also speculated the a lisfranc injury could be something to look out for.

During their 24-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals generated over 300 yards passing --Andy Dalton (252) and Mohamed Sanu (50). And they did that without superstar wide receiver A.J. Green, who was being looked at by the training staff during Cincinnati's game-opening possession. Eventually Green was declared "out" with a toe injury.
According to Ian Rapoport, they're calling it "turf toe."
And for the #Bengals, it appears WR AJ Green has turf toe, source says. Like everyone else, more tests coming— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 14, 2014
Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu led the team with 84 yards receiving while running back Giovani Bernard added 79 yards receiving on five receptions. The Bengals were still able to generate 300 yards passing without Green, wide receiver Marvin Jones and tight end Tyler Eifert, who collectively posted 23 touchdowns last season.
Green's injury was aggravated from last week and told ESPN's Bob Holtzman that he intends to play.
