CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati wide receiver A.J. Green’s season may be over.
According to a report from ESPN’S Adam Schefter, Green is soon expected to undergo season-ending surgery on torn ligaments in his toe:
The Bengals and their fans can’t seem to catch a break. Green was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday’s game against the Broncos and carted off the field with an injury to his right foot.
Green left the field visibly in pain Sunday and appeared to injure his foot in a non-contact play during the second quarter of the game.
ESPN and FOX NFL analyst Warren Sharp also noted the lack of contact in the injury on Twitter.
Sunday was Green’s first game back after he suffered a toe injury on the same foot in week eight’s win over Tampa Bay.
Without Green, the Bengals lost a string of games, during which quarterback Andy Dalton was also injured and ruled out for the season.
A source confirmed Dalton tore ligaments in his throwing hand thumb in a loss to cross-state rival Cleveland.
The team’s season could be summed up by injuries. Four linebackers have missed time this season due to injury and several have landed on season-ending injured reserve.
