A.J. Green is on his way back from the toe injury that wiped out the end of his 2018 campaign.
The Cincinnati Bengals receiver will participate in individual drills this week during mandatory minicamp, per the team’s official website.
He will sit out team drills, but it’s a positive step in the right direction.
It’s the first organized on-field work with teammates the superstar receiver has undertaken since undergoing toe surgery in December. He played just nine games in 2018 compiling 694 yards and six TDs, which was the first season of his career 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 next step in his rehab process. Hopefully, he’ll be full-go by training camp in late July.
"Everybody says it should be back to normal and it feels good. No setbacks," Green said. "Nothing. No soreness after I run. It just feels good. It’s a good thing I just got it fixed. If I finished the season, I would have had to get it fixed anyway. It’s good to get back in the swing and get ready for training camp."
