Bengals A.J. Green hurt in first practice
CINCINNATI - Bengals All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green fell awkwardly Thursday afternoon while going for a pass during the team's first practice of training camp. Green and cornerback Terence Newman were involved in a one-on-one drill running down the right sideline.
Green went up for the pass from quarterback Andy Dalton and came down in an off-balanced manner that seemed to tweak his left knee. Green remained on his backside for a few minutes while trainers attended to him. He eventually got up and walked off the field under his own power. He walked back across the street with the medical staff to be examined inside PBS.
These are the same practice fields the Bengals use throughout the regular season. They are holding training camp at home for the second straight year after going away from Cincinnati for camp the first 44 years of the franchise's existence, most recently to Georgetown College in Central Kentucky.
"I think he's fine. They went inside just to take a look, but I think he's fine," said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. "It had nothing to do with the practice field. It was just the way he came down a little awkwardly."
