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.
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.

Week 2: Green vs Falcons
There is no doubt A.J. Green is one of the best fantasy receivers in the NFL. He is good against the good defenses and even better against the bad ones. Green had 6 catches for 131 yards and a touchdown last week which is about what we expected from him.
Green did sit out practice on Thursday, but it was precautionary. Health is really the only thing that can stop him at this point.
The matchup this week is against one of those bad defenses. The Falcons will not have many answers for Green so expect big numbers again. Start him in all leagues as one of the top receiver options in Week 2.
