Bengals’ A.J. Green out indefinitely after setback

At 31 years old and with injuries plaguing him in recent years, it's hard to envision Green commanding a lucrative contract. It's all about make sure I'm taking care of myself first.

At this point it's very unclear if Green will suit up this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. The receiver said negotiations between himself and Cincinnati's front office slowed down while he was recovering from injury.

Alas, the setback during walkthrough will push the return at least another week.

It appears that the man was gardening when the ground beneath him collapse, leaving him to fall 7 metres below the surface. However, extinct tubes (the ones without flowing lava) are often used as tourist attractions in Hawaii.

"I don't know", Green said, via the team's official website. "I've just got to be completely healthy to where I can go out there and play at a high level".

Not long after that announcement, Green was noticeably absent from the Bengals' Wednesday practice.

For now, Green said he's going to take things "day-by-day". "We'll just take it day by day and see where we're at tomorrow". "He's been making great progress this week". Dating back to Week 12 of the 2016 season, Green has missed 21 games. Taylor made the decision to bench Andy Dalton last week, which has set the stage for fourth-round pick Ryan Finley to make his National Football League debut against the Ravens. The seven-time Pro Bowler was required to undergo surgery and was expected to miss the first couple of months of the season. The receiver's injury has left the Bengals in a precarious position when it comes to his future in Cincinnati.
