More A.J. Green: If He Can't Play This Week, WR Will Be Back After Bye (9/15 12:05 PT)

The Facts: It appears that Green won’t be lost for a long period of time and if he doesn’t play next Sunday against Tennessee, indications are he had a negative MRI and he’ll be ready after the bye week for the Oct. 5 game in New England.  Reported by Bengals.com

Mounting Evidence Says Ryan Mathews Sprained An MCL (9/14 11:58 PT)

The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... Mathews was carted off the field Sunday with a right knee injury. The early prognosis is he suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament, a source said following a 30-21 win over Seattle.  Reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune

Diehards Line: It is unclear how much time he will miss. He'll likely be further examined to determine the extent of the sprain, which by definition is a tear. A tear's degree can range between first, second and third. If an MCL sprain alone proves to be final assessment, Mathews can miss anywhere from minimal time to eight weeks. ... We'll continue to follow up.

Revised Diagnosis: A.J. Green Has Strained Foot Ligament; Not Serious (9/14 5:58 PT)

The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... There is an updated diagnosis on Green. The injury he suffered is a ligament strain in his foot and not turf toe as initially believed. Reported by NFL.com

Diehards Line: According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the strain involves the toe and the bottom of his foot, and it's not serious. As NFL.com's Chris Wesseling notes, Green is the engine that makes the Bengals' offense go. With No. 2 receiver Marvin Jones and tight end Tyler Eifert also sidelined, quarterback Andy Dalton is without his top three options in the passing game. Play-caller Hue Jackson will have to rely heavily on Giovani Bernard and rookie Jeremy Hill to shoulder a heavy workload on the ground if Green misses time.

RG3 will undergo more tests tomorrow. Gruden does not yet know how much time Griffin will miss as of today. But ESPN's Dr. Mark Adickes notes such dislocatoins generally occur with fracture so he thinks RG3 is done for the year.... It's safe to say we'll be following up on this one.

A.J. Green Sustained A Turf Toe (9/14 3:47 PT)

The Facts: The Bengals avoided stubbing a toe without their best player, but they’ll be watching that toe all week. A league source tells PFT that Green suffered a turf toe injury Sunday. Reported by Profootballtalk.com

Diehards Line: He left the game early, and did not return. While the name of the injury might sound innocuous, it’s a problematic injury for anyone who has to push off, change directions or accelerate. Those things come up in football sometimes. The Bengals posted an impressive win without him, but it will be hard to sustain if he misses much time. ... We'll follow up on that angle as further details come to light.
