Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green will be off the field indefinitely due to an injury. Following Monday’s off-week practice, Green said he experienced ankle swelling, causing him to sit out Wednesday’s practice.
Green has not played since he tore multiple ligaments in his left ankle during the Bengals’ first practice of the preseason. He underwent surgery in late July. Green said he’s still optimistic that he can play at some point in 2019, adding “I just take it day-by-day. If that comes to a point where I can’t play, that’s what’s supposed to happen. Then my ankle’s not where I need to be for me to play. Right now, I’m still thinking I still can play. I still can give this thing a little bit more time and then we go from there.”
