Schefter: Bengals' A.J. Green has torn ligaments, not expected to return by Week 1

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has torn ligaments in his left ankle, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday.

What It Means:

An MRI reportedly revealed multiple ligament tears, and Green is expected to be on the shelf for about six to eight weeks. Original reports had Green missing about a month, but Schefter's news is much more daunting. The superstar wide receiver will likely miss Week 1 at the very least.

Before this update, our models projected Green for 85.1 catches, 1,232.1 yards and 9.08 touchdowns in the 2019 season.
