Green exits early from practice
CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals receiver A.J. Green left practice during warmups on Wednesday after aggravating his injured right big toe.
Green has been bothered by the injury since the season opener. He missed most of a game against Atlanta the following week, but has played in the last two. He had five catches for a team-high 81 yards and a touchdown during a 43-17 loss at New England on Sunday night.
Green was going through warmup drills at the start of practice when he stopped, removed his right shoe and threw it to the ground angrily. He put the shoe back on and limped slightly as he walked to a cart and left practice.
Coach Marvin Lewis confirmed it was the same injury that has bothered him the last few weeks. He said the foot was being examined, but he had no further information.
The offense has been diminished the last few weeks because of injuries. Tight end Tyler Eifert is out until at least midseason with an elbow injury. Receiver Marvin Jones broke a bone in his left foot during training camp and had a screw inserted. He rejoined practice last week but injured an ankle and didn’t practice on Wednesday.
And now Green is in doubt for Sunday when the Bengals (3-1) host Carolina (3-2) in a matchup of division leaders.
“We’re not running out of weapons,” offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said after practice. “We’re going to put somebody else in there.”
