The Cincinnati Bengals received some good news on Monday. A.J. Green — who left in the second play of the game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday — is expected to return this season.

He left with a hamstring injury and did not return. The team originally thought he had a completely torn hamstring — but now it appears to be a minor tear.

Green went out early and it was later discovered that Giovani Bernard, the Bengals running back, was also interested in the game. Late Sunday night, it was announced that Bernard tore his ACL.

He’s expected to miss the rest of this season and may miss parts of the 2017 season. With the Bengals 3-6-1 and don’t appear to be destined for the playoffs, so one has to wonder why head coach Marvin Lewis would even bring Green back.

Green is definitely out this weekend. He’s expected to be considered week-to-week moving forward. He may also miss Week 13, too.

Through 10 games this season, he has 66 receptions for 964 yards and four touchdowns. He has four games, where he had over a 100 yard receiving yards.
