When the season started, the Bengals were hopeful A.J. Green could return from ankle surgery during the first eight games. Now, that's unlikely as Green is expected to miss the Week 8 game against the Rams, per ESPN. On Sunday, Green said the recovery hasn't been longer than he or the team anticipated, even though he didn't start the season on IR. "I think they all knew the timeline," Green said. The Bengals are 0-7 ahead of this week's game against the Rams.
