Bengals' A.J. Green has setback, out indefinitely



The 31-year-old suffered torn ligaments in his ankle during the first day of training camp, causing him to be a non-factor for the team to this point.

Jackson, 22, practiced Wednesday and wasn't listed on the injury report.

"I can't go out there when I'm not 100 percent", Green said, via The Athletic. Following Monday's off-week practice, Green said he experienced swelling that derailed his plans of participating in Wednesday's practice.

The Ravens (6-2) play at the Cincinnati Bengals (0-8) on Sunday and will aim to extend their winning streak to four games.

Earlier today, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor told the media that A.J. Green would most likely make his season debut this weekend.

After missing the first eight games of the season for the Bengals, it looks like A.J. Green's 2019 debut is going to be delayed at least one more week, and in the worst scenario, it might not ever happen.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Baltimore is preparing to face Green this week. "Now I'm just getting it out of my mind and understanding that it's fine". Right now, I'm still thinking I still can play. "I don't want to get too specific, but I think he's starting to feel really confident and we're feeling confident now that he's out there".

This seems to be a somewhat clear indication that Green's ankle injury is not recovering at the pace Cincinnati had hoped.

Green, the fourth-overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, has averaged 75 receptions and 1,113 yards per season during his eight-year career.
