Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is, according to his head coach, fully healthy. That is pretty significant news considering he hadn’t been for the past year and a half or so. The perennial Pro Bowler never fully recovered from a foot injury suffered in 2018 by the time he was injured again on the first day of training camp in 2019, which resulting in him missing the entire season.
Green, who had just completed a long-term extension, was given the franchise tag by the Bengals this year. A year ago, he had made negative comments about the prospect of being given the franchise tag, though given his health status, he doesn’t have much room to quibble.
