A.J. Green showed up Tuesday at the Freestore Foodbank wearing a walking boot to protect his right foot.
The Cincinnati Bengals star wideout said the boot, required after surgery following a season-ending toe injury, will be gone in about a week.
"Next step is I put on a shoe and I start bending it back more and moving it more," Green said. "The biggest thing is it's the offseason and we have time. We don't have to rush anything. The biggest thing is getting range of motion back."
The injury limited Green to the least productive season in his eight-year career — 46 catches, 694 yards and six touchdowns. The story went on to say Green's recovery is estimated to be at least a four-month process after he had surgery in December. Green didn't offer specifics about his availability for OTAs and minicamp, but he said he'll be ready when it counts, according to the story.
CIN WR A.J. Green - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 vs. Denver Broncos
A.J. Green has been practicing and is expected to play his first game since Week 8. He continues to be a model of consistency for Cincinnati with a four-reception game being his lowest of the season. Green will have a new quarterback throwing to him as Jeff Driskel replaces the injured Andy Dalton.
Green will face the Broncos who are 12th in aFPA to wide receivers. The quarterback situation hurts his value as he will return for Cincinnati, but he only rates as a high-end WR3 or a flex for Week 13. We will see how healthy Green is and how Driskel plays in his first NFL start.
