Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is out of his walking boot and said Wednesday that the ran this week without any discomfort. Green added that he's "ahead of schedule" but wouldn't give a timetable for his return. We'd consider him at least 2 weeks away from his 2019 debut. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is still in a walking boot, according to Geoff Hobson of the team's official website. That doesn't sound like a guy who will be ready to play football any time soon. At this point, it wouldn't be surprising to see Green miss all of September. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson reports that HC Zac Taylor says WR A.J. Green is not a candidate for short-term IR. "Feels like he'll be back before 8 weeks," Hobson tweeted. That's not necessarily a positive development. Even at a 6th-round ADP, fantasy drafters clearly aren't assuming anything near an 8-week absence for Green. We'll watch for more specific updates here. Green remains a high-risk selection anywhere near ADP.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport updated his earlier reports on Bengals WR A.J. Green on Tuesday afternoon. Rapoport tweeted, "Based on what they found cleaning out the ankle, he's now expected to miss a few games." That's 3 varying reports from Rapoport on Green today. We already shaved a couple of games off Green's projection after the initial diagnosis, though. His position at the bottom of WR2 territory seems appropriate for now ... at least until the next thing "sources" say.

Bengals WR A.J. Green underwent a "minor ankle procedure" on Tuesday morning, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The surgery was aimed at cleaning out the ankle after Saturday's injury, per Rapoport, and doesn't change Green's timeline for return. Rapoport even says "Week 1 is still possible" for Green. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his rehab, but fantasy owners should still be expecting Green to miss at least a game or 2 after he was slapped with a 6-8 week timetable for return.

Injury Predictor

After losing 6 games to a hamstring tear in 2016, Green returned to play a full 16 games for the 4th time in 6 years. He has also topped 130 targets each of those years and 1,000 receiving yards in 6 of 7 seasons. Green needs to rebound from his fewest receptions per game since his rookie year and career lows in yards per game and catch rate. The Bengals offense on whole tanked in 2017.
