News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Sep 15): Green suffered a strained toe ligament (turf toe) against the Falcons on Sunday. The initial time frame for his return is one-to-two weeks - further evaluations are scheduled for Monday. Further reports on Monday indicate that Green actually has a strained ligament in his foot - there is some confusion over what the issue with Green is. Hopefully further evaluations will clear up the confusion and give us a more precise time-frame for him to return to action. Geoff Hobson reported that coach Marvin Lewis said this is "not (a) long term injury".
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): Green may not miss any more time with his foot/toe ailment, but it could pop up again later this season, and otherwise is a black mark on his profile going forward compared to his peers.
General News (Tue Sep 16): has a strained ligament in his foot, as opposed to the original diagnosis of turf toe. It's unclear whether it's an aggravation of the injury that caused him to miss practice Thursday, Sept. 11, or if it's a new injury.

2014 Week 1 vs BAL (9 / 6 / 131 / 1 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Green was having a nightmare game until the 2nd half. The first half had options, qb keepers, screen passes and reverses, but didn't feature many passes to Green. That changed on the first drive as Dalton hit Green across the middle for 23 yards. Green made a nice move to get open between the defenders and Dalton hit him for the big gain. But Green helped save the day for Cincy with his 78 yard TD at the end of the game. Dalton threw it perfectly and Green didn't have to break stride. However the defender got a hand in there and distracted Green causing him to bobble the ball in the air. Green kept his concentration and grabbed the ball again on the bobble. Then he made two moves on the safety Stewart, and left him standing in his tracks as he raced in for the game-winning touchdown. Despite the great play by Green, though, the ramifications of this offense have to be slightly concerning for Green's owners. Dalton and Cincy have traditionally gotten the ball downfield quite a bit. Whether this gameplan was designed solely for the Ravens or is going to be the norm remains to be seen. But if the Bengals primarily move the ball in the short passing game and limit the risks, we may see less opportunities for big gains for Green.
2014 Week 2 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Green hurt his toe early in the game and missed the entire game. It's likely he will return after the Bengals week 4 bye week.

Our View: Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief here. If he is not able to play Week 3, he should be ready after the team's Week 4 bye. If Green is out in Week 3, then we'll see an increased opportunity for Mohammed Sanu.

Green could miss time (Mon Sep 15, 09:57 AM) - Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) doesn't have a significant injury and would likely return for Week 5 after the bye week if he's unable to play in Week 3. The injury was related to the injury that forced him to miss practice Thursday, Sept. 11. Our View: The Bengals need to be cautious here. Their passing game is already without Marvin Jones, so if Green misses any time then Mohammed Sanu will get a more prominent role in the offense.

Stay tuned for everything our Dr. Jene Bramel has to say about how this impacts Green's outlook. The values of Andy Dalton, Giovani Bernard, Mohamed Sanu, and Jeremy Hill will all be affected.
