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 (ankle) returned to a "very limited" practice on Thursday, per insider Geoff Hobson. It's Green's 1st official workout since going down on July 27. He won't play against the Ravens this weekend but has "a chance" to return for Week 7, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor confirmed that WR A.J. Green (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Ravens and added that Green won't practice this week. That makes a Week 7 return seem unlikely. Cincinnati has a Week 9 bye, which might factor into the decision about when to bring Green back.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is expected to be out until at least Week 7. Green is now 2 months removed from his injury. The last real update we got came when he shed his walking boot and resumed running about 3 weeks ago. Green still hasn't officially practiced with the team. It's worth noting that the Bengals have a Week 9 bye, so it's possible they hold Green out through then.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said Monday that there's still no timetable for WR A.J. Green's return from his ankle injury. Taylor added that Green won't practice this week. That'd seemingly make Week 6 the best-case scenario for Green's 2019 debut. If you've stashed him on your bench for this long, though, you should continue to stash him.

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.
