Cincinnati Bengals Thankful A.J. Green’s Knee Injury Not More Serious
There is no question the Cincinnati Bengals held their breath when they saw wide receiver A.J. Green drop to the ground clutching his left knee during practice. The good news is the bruised knee is nothing too serious as Green is expected to return sometime this week. With that being said, seeing Green on the ground certainly put things into perspective.
“It was like I was trying to keep my feet in and then I got off balance. I don’t know if something was under my foot, or if it was a rock or something. I just went back and slipped,” Green said, according to USA Today Sports.
It is easy for everyone to be calm after the incident. However, there is no denying Green is a huge part of the offense for the 2013 NFL season. The No. 1 wide receiver is quarterback Andy Dalton’s top target. Without that safety blanket, who knows what the outcome of the season would be if something were to happen to the 24-year-old.
“It was a scary moment, for sure,” veteran cornerback Terence Newman said, according to USA Today Sports. “That’s one of those guys that if he threw up on the sideline, I’m nervous. Now I’m seeing him grab his knee, so I’m really nervous. Sounds like he’s going to be good, though, so that was a breath of fresh air.”
Green hauled in a career-high 97 receptions for 1,350 yards and 11 touchdowns in his second year in the league. He also grabbed five catches for 80 yards in Cincinnati’s 19-13 playoff loss to the Houston Texans.
