Cincinnati Bengals Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green will not play Monday night against the Steelers and could be out a while as he continues to recover from preseason ankle surgery, sources told ESPN.
Green, 31, got out of a protective boot a few weeks ago and has been running and doing workouts. He is not expected to be ready, however, for the games against Arizona at home and at Baltimore, sources said.
No timetable has been given for Green but this story makes it seem like he won't play the team's next three games, including tonight on Monday night. The story added the Bengals then have games against the Jaguars in Week 7 and then the Rams in London in Week 8 before a bye Week 9. If the 0-3 Bengals haven't turned around their season by then, it might not make sense for Green to rush his return when free agency awaits this offseason.
