Last week, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis described the status of A.J. Green as “up in the air.” While Lewis expressed more optimism on Monday, Green has repeated the same assessment provided previously by Lewis.
“It’s still up in the air,” Green told NFL Network on Tuesday morning, “but it definitely feels better. We’ll see about this week.”
One thing we won’t see is a fully healthy A.J. Green until 2015, at the earliest.
“It’s probably not gonna be 100 percent, but I hope it’s just manageable,” Green said.
Green did add that he thinks he can still get through the season and play at a high level once he is able to play, but his injury is a cause for concern at his position. There could be a lot of missed practices, questionable statuses and maybe even game-time decisions in the future for Green owners.
