Why did it take me 40 ####### years to find this thread.. If I remember correctly, according to Warren Sharp, Green only lined up in the slot on ~10% of his snaps last year. What I noticed on his

Boot OFF get hype

They played themselves when they didn't trade him.

If this is something g that is going to Londoner and impede him all season I hope they just let him rest and get back after the bye. Really 2 games out isn't that big a deal.

I agree. A fully healthy AJ green who misses 3 games is better than an AJ Green who could leave the game any moment and be out for who knows how long. I can survive until after the bye.

Stephania Bell @Stephania_ESPN 3m

Green improving? MT@ColeyHarvey: A.J. during open portion of practice did go through few cuts on comeback and drag. Caught both. Looked good

Stephania Bell @Stephania_ESPN 3m

Green MT@ColeyHarvey: He said Weds wanted to see how he felt after today/Friday practices, but have to think this bodes well for him playing

I'd lend more credence to the decoy argument if today was Friday. However, today is Thursday and he's already practicing. Usually Fridays are where teams install their redzone, goaline, and 2 minute packages. It's also common for an injured player to sit out Wed and Thu, but play so long as they practice Friday. The fact they had him out there on a Thu and didn't bother giving him that extra day leads me to believe he is actually healthy enough to be out there practicing, thus he should play.

Also keep in mind, he was injured in the game itself. Even if he went in the back and took a cortisone shot to mask the pain, it would take time to kick in so there was no chance of it really helping him that day. However, if he takes a cortisone shot an hour or two before kickoff, he should be able to play pretty pain free for the next few hours without much chance of worsening the injury with 2 weeks to heal afterward due to the Week 4 bye.

Awesome analysis here.

Perhaps AJ is not as seriously turf toed as was initially thought.

I didn't see the game, and I know he went out early, but perhaps by the time docs had a chance to look at him, the bengals felt like they were controlling the game enough to not need him.

I'm hoping he's ready to roll.

I hate these scenarios. Maybe he plays and is just a decoy? Of course, you play him and that's the case. You sit him and he goes for 150 and 2

I just wish whatever it is that they do rest him, get the bye and comes back fresh and for the long haul

A.J. Green (toe) said he "feels good" and plans to play Sunday against the Titans.

After returning to practice Thursday, Green said Friday morning that there's no soreness in his toe, and if he feels like this on Sunday, he's going to be out there. We still need to keep a close eye on Green up through Sunday morning. For now, he can be penciled into lineups as a low-end WR1. There's a heightened chance for aggravation. Green's not a recommended FanDuel play. Sep 19 - 10:12 AM


So, assuming he practices, how does everyone feel about rolling him out again this week? Last week's goose egg cost me a win, but I hate to leave Green on the bench.

If he plays, you can't sit him... but I don't think it's shaping up to be a big game for him anyway. Dallas ran all over TEN last week. I think they're going to pound Gio/Hill 40+ times, dominate time of possession, and win comfortably.

Then play action if the run game is dominating,one deep shot to Green for a TD and he's got a decent game,imop

as of now, looks like he is a go. If we owners start him, hope it's not like last week a series or two and then out with ZERO pts. I hope he is absolutely at or near 100% and not jeopardizing future returns....not only for fantasy owners but the Bengals too.

My thoughts exactly. Give him this week and the bye to get to 100%.

It will. It takes months to heal fully.

It's very annoying where everything seems fine and one leap or one cut that for some reason the toe didn't seem to like and it's aggravated again.

I don't know the medical terminology but it's like a dislocation and sprain. Do you have a buddy whose fine and every so often throws his shoulder out with little rhyme or reason why? It's similar to that.

The Titans couldn't defend the pass last week. If McCourty sits, there's no reason to play Green. It was horrible.

ETA if he's probable I guess he's a go, then maybe they're up 21 points and he rests after. Seriously horrid pass D last week was my point

Do you have something to say here or are you just being a nuisance?

A.J. Green just got carted off practice field while practice is open. He let out an audible sigh as he rode off. Possibly his toe #Bengals

This is a sick joke, right?

I don't think so:
