With their season all but over, the Cincinnati Bengals are shutting down their star wide receiver.
AJ Green will be placed on injured reserve after he re-aggravated his toe injury on Sunday.
Bengals’ WR A.J. Green is expected to undergo season-ending surgery on the torn ligaments in his toe that will sideline him 3-4 months, but he is expected to have a full recovery and be ready for OTAs, per source.

Green missed the team’s last three games and returned in Week 13 but was unfortunately carted off in the middle of the Bengals loss to the Broncos on Sunday after recording just one catch for seven yards.
Green had his least productive year as a pro in 2018 due to his injury. The receiver finished with 46 receptions on 77 targets, 694 yards and six touchdowns.
