Green had toe surgery in December, but is expected to be ready for training camp

Summary

The only thing to stop Green in recent season has been injuries, losing most of his 2016 and 2018 seasons to a torn ACL and a foot injury, respectively. Green recovered from the 2016 injury to post another 1,000-yard season (a milestone he has never missed in any season where he has played at least 13 games). And his 2019 prospects appear positive as well, as he shed his walking boot in February. He should return to practices sometime early this summer and should be a full go for training camp. (May 5)

Bengals | A.J. Green cleared for minicamp (Tue Jun 11, 12:10 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) has been cleared to fully participate in minicamp but won't do much beyond individual drills. 'I know what to expect from A.J.,' head coach Zac Taylor said Tuesday, June 11.

Our View: It's news we've seen before about Green, and Taylor just confirmed it on Tuesday. Green is going to be 100 percent for training camp, but he's just getting eased back in by participating in individual drills. We imagine his ADP will rise as the season gets closer. Green is currently going off the board at WR13 (3.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Bengals | A.J. Green wants to stay in Cincinnati (Sun Jun 9, 04:43 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green told reporters Friday, June 7, he'd like to remain in Cincinnati for the long term as he heads into the final year of a four-year, $60-million contract extension signed in 2015. 'I can't see myself playing anywhere else or playing in a different city. Hopefully, I can be here for a couple more years. We'll see on that part.'

Our View: Green could benefit from a revitalized offense this year, and he can certainly still play at a very high level. If the Bengals don't intend on extending him, they should trade him this year for picks that will help a team build under a first-year head coach.
