The Cincinnati Bengals announced Wednesday that they’ve place WR A.J. Green on injured reserve and activated CB Davontae Harris from injured reserve.
Adam Schefter reported that Green is expected to undergo season-ending surgery for torn ligaments in his toe.
According to Schefter, Green will be sidelined for 3-4 months, but he is expected to have a full recovery and be ready in time for the start of OTAs.
Green, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals back in 2011. He’s currently in the fourth year of his five-year, $70.176 million contract that included $26.75 million guaranteed and set to make base salaries of $10.55 million and $11.97 million over the remainder of the agreement.
In 2018, Green appeared nine games for the Bengals and caught 46 passes for 694 yards receiving and six touchdowns.
Harris, 23, was selected in the third round of this year’s draft by the Bengals. He agreed to a four-year, $2,748,576 contract with the Bengals and stands to make a base salary of $480,000 for the 2018 season.
The Bengals placed Harris on injured reserve coming out of the preseason with a knee injury before designating him to return last month.
During his college career at Illinois State, Harris recorded 208 tackles, four interceptions, three sacks, and 39 pass defenses over the course of four years.
