A.J. Green is on his way back in the foot injury which wiped out the end of his 2018 effort.
The Cincinnati Bengals receiver may take part in individual exercises this week per the group’s official site, during minicamp.
??? NFL’s top 5 defensive triplets
??? Superstar club: Watson in, Brady out ??? 24 reasons Chubb will split ??? Team fits for top staying FAs
??? Ranking deepest position groups
??? Offensive triplets: Who’s No. 1?
He will sit out group exercises, but it’s a positive step in the right direction.
It’s the first coordinated on-field work with mates that the superstar receiver has mastered since undergoing toe surgery in December. He played just nine matches in 2018 compiling 694 yards and six TDs, that had been the very first season of his profession with fewer than 960 yards.
Entering the final year of his contract, Green is due for an extension. For now, he’s just focusing on this step into his rehabilitation process. Hopefully, he will be full-go by training camp in late July.
“Everyone says it should return to normal and it seems good. No setbacks,” Green stated. “Nothing. No discomfort after I run. It simply feels good. It’s a fantastic thing I got it fixed. If I ended the season, I’d have had to get it fixed anyway. It’s fantastic to get back in the swing and get ready for training camp.”
Here are additional injuries Tuesday, we’re monitoring:
1. Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich announced that quarterback Andrew Luck (calf) won’t practice this week, meaning that the earliest he’ll be on the field is coaching camp in July. Reich said the movement is more a precautionary measure and the team isn’t concerned. Luck missed OTAs on account of this injury.
2. Philadelphia Eagles running Miles Sanders won’t practice this week during Philly’s mandatory minicamp, trainer Doug Pederson told reporters Tuesday. The newcomer, hailed 53rd overall out of Penn State, has overlooked the whole offseason program with a hamstring injury.
3. San Francisco 49ers tackle Mike McGlinchey didn’t practice because of a slight knee injury. Fellow tackle Joe Staley was limited in practice as he is coping with a pec strain. Niners tight end Garrett Celek underwent back surgery and is slated to confront a two-month recovery. Celek stays in concussion protocol since Week 16.
