CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis released some good news Monday after their bye week.
Wide receiver A.J. Green, who suffered a toe injury during the last game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will not need surgery. He will be back this season.
Green completed his last catch of the game, he stood up and immediately reached for his foot.
He told FOX19 he jammed his toe and he would be fine.
ESPN is now reporting Green will see a specialist to reevaluate his foot and determine when he will play again.
“No he doesn’t have to have surgery,” Lewis told ESPN. “We pretty much kind of knew that, but we just wanted to touch all bases.”
The Bengals play a home game Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
