NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that there has been no final diagnosis of Bengals WR A.J. Green's injury yet. The wideout did get a 2nd opinion and is not currently in line for surgery. Rapoport said the team will re-evaluate the injured area in "a couple of weeks." Rapoport added no one he's talked to has ruled Green out for the opener. Although there's optimism in the Green report, we fantasy drafters would prefer a little more certainty to this situation.

Update: After reporting Green had no surgery plans, Rapoport reported that Green had a “minor procedure” Tuesday morning to “clear it out.” Week 1 reportedly remains a possibility

An MRI on Sunday revealed that Bengals WR A.J. Green tore ligaments in his left ankle in Saturday's practice, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The injury is expected to sideline him 6-8 weeks, which will spill over into the regular season. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero erports that there's no surgery in the plans now and that Green will be getting a 2nd opinion. Bengals WR John Ross has also been dealing with hamstring tightness.

Bengals WR A.J. Green suffered a low-ankle sprain in Saturday's practice, Elise Jesse of WLWT-TV in Cincinnati reports. The news could have been a lot worse after the veteran wideout left the field on a cart. We'll see about a timetable for his return but aren't moving Green down our rankings over this.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) has been cleared to participate in individual drills during minicamp. He injured a toe on his right foot twice last season and had surgery to repair torn ligaments in early December. His 7 missed games in 2018 bring him to 13 over the past 3 years and 16 over the past 5. But Green ranked 16th among WRs in PPR points per game last season after finishing 13th and 4th the previous 2 years. There's injury risk here, but Green boasts plenty of upside at his late-3rd-round ADP.

The Bengals have officially named Zac Taylor their HC. The marriage has been set for about a month, but the announcement had to wait until the Rams' season was over. Taylor spent the past 2 years working under Sean McVay, but it's unclear exactly how big a hand he had in the scheme or game-planning. Taylor has just 5 games of experience as an NFL OC, all with Miami back in 2015. The Fins averaged 17 points in those 5 contests. Taylor was the University of Cincinnati's OC in 2016, "leading" the Bearcats to a 106th-place finish in total offense.

The Bengals have fired HC Marvin Lewis. He's been the boss in Cincinnati for 16 seasons, compiling a 131-122-3 record. Lewis' squad made the playoffs 7 times but never got a postseason victory. Cincinnati went 19-28-1 over the past 3 seasons. We're already hearing Hue Jackson mentioned as a potential replacement for Lewis. Poor Bengals fans.

Bengals WR A.J. Green is set to undergo season-ending surgery to repair torn ligaments in his toe, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Green is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 months, so he should be back by springtime. He'll end up missing 7 games this season, bringing him to 13 total over the past 3 seasons. Durability is a concern moving forward for the 30-year-old. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will close out the 2018 campaign as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.

Bengals WR A.J. Green suffered a non-contact right foot injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Broncos. He had to be carted to the locker room, so don't expect him to return. This is likely an aggravation of the injury that cost him the past 3 games.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play against the Broncos on Sunday after missing the past 3 games. The injury and QB Jeff Driskel add risk to Green’s Week 13 outlook. But he’s worth using in most fantasy lineups as a WR2 with upside.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was on the field for Wednesday's walkthrough and told reporters that he'll return for this weekend's game against the Broncos. Green was sitting 7th among WRs in PPR points before going down in Week 8. QB Jeff Driskel adds some unknown, but Green will be worth getting into Week 13 fantasy lineups as at least a WR2 with upside.

As expected, Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He was working off to the side of Friday's practice, so a Week 12 return looks possible. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will again serve as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs vs. a stingy Baltimore defense. Consider Boyd a low-end WR2 and Ross just a fantasy flier.

Update: The Bengals listed Green as doubtful. He won't play, but it's another sign that he could return next week.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) remained sidelined on Thursday. The team has yet to rule him out, but he's a long shot to play against the Ravens this weekend. That'll again leave Tyler Boyd and John Ross as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis said Wednesday that he's "hopeful" WR A.J. Green returns for this weekend's game against the Ravens. It's a surprise after previous reports had Week 12 as Green's earliest possible return. We still wouldn't count on having Green this week, but it at least sounds like he's making good progress.

Bengals WR A.J. Green will avoid surgery on his injured toe, according to multiple reports. He's expected to miss at least 2 games, however, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. WR Tyler Boyd has already drawn 22.3% of Cincinnati targets on the season and will be an even stronger weekly volume bet for as long as Green's out -- especially this week against the favored Saints and their weak secondary. Green's absence also adds target upside to the Cincinnati backfield and TE C.J. Uzomah. WR John Ross returned to practice Monday after missing Week 8 with a groin injury. We'll see if he's ready to play against New Orleans. Alex Erickson and Cody Core sit next on the WR depth chart. Cincinnati also promoted rookie WR Auden Tate from the practice squad Monday.
