A.J. Green believed to have sprained ligament in foot

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

An initial league source told PFT that Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green suffered a turf toe injury Sunday.

He left the game early, and did not return.

An update later in the day said Green is now believed to have a sprained ligament in his foot.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's also considered turf toe, and the Sunday night reports say Green could be back by Week 5, according to the Bengals Web site. Mohamed Sanu had a big day in Green's absence and Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher are next up on the depth chart. With Marvin Jones already out, it's a hit to QB Andy Dalton's value as well. The Bengals may end up leaning a little more on RB Giovani Bernard in the passing game with RB Jeremy Hill getting more carries. Both stood out vs. Atlanta in Week 2. Sanu appears to be poised for a busy Week 3 and makes for a sneaky pickup and start. If you pick up Sanu, keep in mind both Jones and Green are now on track to be back Week 5.
