A.J. Green's injury on 'subpar' Bengals practice field will cost wide receiver up to two months

"Speaking of injuries unfortunately an M._r._i.. Has revealed that Cincinnati Bengals Wide Receiver A._J.. Green has torn ligaments in his left. Ankle is according affording to Schefter here. They are likely to sideline green six to eight weeks up really not a good situation and teammate Tyler Boyd questioned the turf. The team was practicing on when green was injured. It was terrible. I couldn't run any routes out there. I'm falling all over the ground man it was it was bad. It was rocks pebbles out there man it was somewhere we should have been just feel like the turf was old. You know it just wasn't we didn't get good traction in and out of her breaks. You know a lot of guys not just me was on the ground but I mean who wasn't up there that long but there's gotTa make a word man. We gotta get it well. The turf was that welcome stadium at the University of Dayton where the bengals are practicing coach you buy this well. I haven't seen the video really in this instance probably not but I will say that you know feel. Surfaces are very very important for player safety. You know whether it's a grass field you know what is the old school latch with Pittsburgh steelers. We practice on hard old school astroturf every day for five years so no you got to look at it but in that instance I think it was a matter of the kind of rolling up on the back of his ankle and that was what I saw caused that particular injury about sure it was the field service problem here in addition to the injury of course which is is paramount is the optics of this and when you have a player who says this sort of perception is reality and then then it's out there and you got players. You might believe this is the case whether the optics to this are awful and this time of year teams are trying to realize their fan N._B._C.'s. I've been a part of that for a number of years. Every team has an operations department and kind of like the offensive line. You'd never talk about the operations department until there's a problem and part of their responsibility is to advance where hotels are safety of the fields whether or not the field deal with safer not now the perception is that it was a problem now e._j.. Green fairness may have gotten hurt it was on their practice field but they're players now think that was a factor and they're at the University of Dayton given rookie head coach. He's trying to establish himself itself and now he has a problem in the locker room because these players are questioning what the organization did and that Operation Staff that you're referring to my signed off on the practices being here the League went to them. They sent a site survey team to inspect the field and that site survey survey team for the Bengals said this field is okay to practicing and maybe they thought it's one practice we can get through now. You've got a situation where you see A._J.. Green get hurt on this play and we can take another look at it right here where he goes up for the past the D._v. lands on his ankle. He's on the turf tears ligaments in his ankle. He's going to be sixty weeks. Think about how much is at stake your now. You have a first year head coach Zack Taylor who's trying to come in and implemented program. They've already lost their first round draft. Pick joyner Williams to a season ending injury. Now you lose your left tackle. You lose your number one wide receiver. They are at a loss there and A._J.. Green himself is going into the last year of his contract so at a time when we're talking about new deals for Michael Thomas in Amari Cooper Julio Jones guess who else was on that list of A._J.. Green so what happens now to his value as argument now that he is going to be out for some period of time and organization standpoint. That's a really difficult position because A._J.. Degrees could say hey. I've done all the right things. I was out there practicing at the university because you wanted me to and now that's going to hurt me and take money out of my own pocket. It could really cause a situation to go awry very quickly and again even if the operations team went through all the protocols the the perception is that this feel wasn't safe and now they have a problem with one of their best players. Yeah I think that team without J. Green if you look at their record versus with huge and so he's a big part of their team. He's going to be missed. This is that there's a fair amount of injury here to start. You know this is not the way not the way you want to get off the ground. No team does last last year he missed time with a toe injury and when he was out of there the offense did not operate the same toddler boys production fell off and everybody thinks talent boy. We'll just emerge as the number one guy and he's a really good wide receiver but the fact that matters A._G.. Green when he's out there makes tyler. Holler bought a better received. John Ross still has not stepped up as the first round draft pick that he was. He says he's ready to do that. Will they need him to do that. They've got some other players Alex Berenson some good young receivers but A._J.. Green is on a level with Julio Jones. He's is that kind of talent and when you Jack Taylor coming into his offense it's hard to get by without somebody that good.

"What does your future look like to you? You know? I don't know. We'll see I love I love the Bengals I love to be part of the organization for the rest of my career. But you know, you never know, you know, I just kick each at a time, and you know, go out there and play get healthy in and go from there. Could you see yourself leaving the team this organization at the end of the season? No, it's hard. You know as a place I've been here for the last eight years going on I years now. So it's it's hard for me to see myself somewhere else because I have a family and all that here. But just never know, man. I like I said I can't control that something may get done. Something may not get done. It's interesting because again, you are in extra linked to Julio Jones drafted two picks ahead of him back in two thousand eleven draft. And he's made a lot of noise this off season about getting a new contract. We're going to see new contracts. I think this off season for receivers like Micheal Thomas, and we don't hear your name. And I guess maybe that's. Because against Cincinnati off the radar AJ grin coming off surgery. And you're not talked about as one of these water. She was getting a new deal is off season. It's kind of odd to me. Yeah. Like, I say would have bingo, bingo, operate, you know, they really don't, you know, put their business out there to the last minute when I'm about to go upstairs do actually so. Like julio. And all those guys, you know, they they all up. So we'll see with the numbers for them. And then go from there age. I don't know how much attention you pay to this in the draft. But the bingles seemed to get some offensive help Joyner Williams Daphne tackle from Alabama in round one drew sample. The titan from Washington round to Ryan Finley the quarterback from MC state and around three a couple of running backs trivia on Williams the six round and Rodney Anderson in the six round is. Well, what was your assessment of what your team did in was trying to do in the draft? I think we did do pretty well from the officer line standpoint, I think Joni was one of the best rated off the line in the draft. And we've got him at number seven. And that was unbelievable because you know, really we need a front so everything that really boost up bluestar officer lineup big time. And then grabbing drew in in the second round guy. You know, watched on his tape to where he can do everything block and and go out there for passer. So I think we address you know, our needs. And I think we kept allies on them. Have you seen any tape of Ryan Finley the quarterback from North Carolina State yet? I saw some. Yeah. I saw some, you know, some click on our think he's a great quarterback there'd be by Andy right now. So. Any idea what to expect him as Bengal? Finley. I think he's gonna come in. And, you know, learn for one one of the best and Andy being one of the smartest guy. And I think he really can learn from him how you describe your relationship with Andy Dalton aging. Unbelievable. Like, I say, it's just not football. Like, I said, I'll I'll life's work together our kids Saint class. So as far more than football with Mandy nine. I think that were makes us oh great on the field. So oh, I didn't realize you guys that close personally Israel, professionally. What is your assessment of anti ends a great quarterback? And he gets a lot of flack, I think this is the position in general. But he's a he's a great quarterback man at this. I think that he we put the pieces around him and everybody does job. I think we can go very far AG talk about a great quarterback. Gimme a great cornerback. That you go against a guy that keeps you up at night when you're getting ready to face him. I think the biggest one is Patrick Peterson. Because I feel like he's the best corner me to me personally. I think he's the best corner..

"I need to actually study him more. I only gotten a chance to watch. If had a million things going on part of the Kentucky game, and he's a huge human being. Yep. And he moves well. But I guess I just saw some Kentucky guys getting the edge on him. And I'm wondering how they kept attacking his outside arm and being able to get past. I I, you know, it's funny to hear you say that you've studied more than I have so far, but I need to watch him a little bit more because I didn't come away from you know, the first quarter of the Kentucky game thinking. Wow, this guy should definitely be a top ten pick. Yeah. And I think they have to watch a lot of them. I mean, I'd just anybody who's going to study him because he doesn't automatically have the look of a guy that you say, wow. That is just a great tackle prospect. But what he does have his nastiness competitiveness as I said. He's more old school. But I think that he can pass protect well enough to obviously to play tackle. And look some old school guys. And I say this honestly, and then some might disagree with me. And that's that's sort of the fun of this some old school guys who've been in the legal longtime coaches scouts might even see him as an offensive guard because he doesn't have that truly light feet the dancing bare feet on the edge. Yeah. The Knicks guy. I wanna bring up Greg is a personal favorite of mine. And there's been a lot of debate about him. And that's Joan Williams the left tackle for Alabama played right tackle as a true. Freshman started every game for Alabama as a true freshman, which by the way, ended up itself says so much about him. And the debate about him Greg is whether or not he's a tackle or guard because he's lacking what some people believe is ideal arm length. For an offensive tackle. Yeah. I mean, thirty three inches is. You know, is usually viewed as kind of the the delineation point he's above that. He's thirty thirty and five eighths. And and the reality is people do look at that. You could be right. I mean, I some might look at Joe Williams and think of someone like Brandon sheriff when he came out of Iowa's the fifth pick in the two thousand fifteen draft. He clearly made the transition from college left tackle to NFL guard and got hurt this year. But as an all pro guard and some might suggest the best coming the best guards in the league. You know, he's an interesting player. He's he's technically and fundamentally sound. I think he's a very very good run blocker. He's officiant. He's to nationless, you know, to me. He's more of a blue collar grinder than a dancing bear on the outside. And I don't know how much you've taken a look at them. I think that's what it says. And overall movement is good enough to play on the edge. Some people I spoke to compare them to that light of the New England Patriots. And if and if he's mad light, then he's certainly good enough to play tack on the NFL, you know, sometimes you watch Pacific matchups and they stick in your head. And when I watch the championship game, and you can argue as a bad game. But he was totally overmatched for Cleveland Farrell now that's one game Ferrell's probably going to be a top twenty pick. But Williams was overmatched in that game. And he just had a really difficult time. So as I said that one game doesn't necessarily mean he's not a good prospect. But. That that game just sticks in my head probably far too much. Well, you know what? I haven't watched the coaching tape of that one. But I have watched some other Joyner William's games. And I I can totally understand people that would say when they look and think of a left tackle, they think of elite length and elite feet, right? You're looking for elite arm length. Yeah. And elite feet, and I don't think Jona has either one of those. I would agree. He is. So technically sound. Yes. And so smart that I in my experience, Greg guys like that figure out figure it out. You know, what I mean like they they figure out what it is. Like, I even play with a guy that was pretty good named Jonas Jennings. We've got a big contract from the Niners. He was like six three three o five. Five didn't have long arms didn't have year. Pretty good feet. But not great feet. And I I've seen too many guys like Joan Williams go on to have because I think he can be a long time left tackle. And I don't disagree. I mean normally guys who are highly competitive two nations with good fundamentals and technique make it in the league. So yeah, I I don't disagree. You know, again, we're discussing which which I don't get into is where a guy gets drafted. But I think that he'll end up being equality. I think he'll stay tackle first of all I would agree. And I do think too. There's just not enough good tackles out there. You know, what I mean like there's just not enough allow teams have won may. But they don't have the other guy. There's just not enough out there. I think a lot of people though, when they think of a starting tackle, I think in their mind, they kind of think of a guy like Andrei Dillard from wash. State just in terms of the ease of movement for him. Don't you think? Yeah. And I like Dillard on tape. I think he's a really interesting prospect, you know, obviously played at Washington state where there was not a lot of what you'd call NFL running concepts. So, you know, a lot of people are going to say that he's not physical and not a good run blocker. And again, you're just watching the tape. And that's what we're looking at. You know to me, I think he's got the physical size build athletic movement traits to play left tackle, you know. I think that his hand usage, which can be tort taught was problematic at times. But he's got really good balance. He's played with poison composure and pass protection. You know? He struck me as a guy that offensive line coaches would love to work with. And again, we have to remember that all these guys come in the league, and you know, this as well as anyone no one's a finished polish product Ross. So, but I think this kid has betrayed. A physical NF let it crates to be very good left tackle. And I think that when all said and done that coaches would love to work with this kid. I would agree. That's kind of what stood out to me as well. A couple of other tackles, I just wanted to mention and if you watch them or not Cody Ford from Oklahoma and yeah little from ole miss you check either one of those guys yet. I did let's start with little I think little could jump right in now and be a really good pass protector in the NFL. I mean, he's got the desired combination of size lane athleticism movement has got a ton of tools. I mean, he fits the profile of what's viewed is the conventional left tackle prospect. If you go back, you know, the way people think of left tackles, I think he's got all the traits to be a high level pass protector. He's got he showed excellent coordination between his feet and his hands. He had an excellent feel for playing to the speed in the mood of the pass rusher. You know, I think he needs work in his run blocking. But I think tackles get drafted in today's NFL to pass protect. And I really liked little on tape. You know, keep one other thing in mind, you I I thought of this when we speaking about Joan Williams the NFL pass game is much quicker. Now, there's more three step-by-step drops. It's not old school with deep seven step drops where you're counting on your your tackles to block one on one for you know, two point six three seconds. So a lot of these guys, you know, the game's different so, but I think rig little could line up and be an NFL pass protector right now. What about Cody Ford, Greg? Now, Cody Ford is a large human being as you probably know he's an interesting kid because. I had another guy that I had a what a lot watch a lot of. Because when I initially watched him. I I don't want to say I struggled with him. But you know, you initially watch him, and I didn't see the F lettuce system. Then you watch them more and more and you go, well, he's actually not not bad as an athlete the more. I watched him the more. I thought he was a much better overall athlete and edge pass protector than than I would have thought, you know. I again, I think he can play tackle. I know people will look at him as a guard, and he's being evaluated as a guard by by many people, and he may end up being a phenomenal guard. If that's where he plays. He's got certainly tremendous upside as a punishing run blocker. I think he can pass protect on the edge. He's got it gives them great position for versatility, you keep one thing in mind. Chris Brown played left tackle for the patriots this year. And you know, he just. Got a huge contract. And no one would have thought that Trent Brown was a left tackle, correct. Right. They didn't the for it. Correct. So the game's changed. So, you know, someone like Cody Ford who you may look and say, well, I don't think he has the ideal fee for tackle. But the games changed. So there's no reason Cody Ford can't line up and play tackle in the National Football League. Yeah. I thought there was similarities between Ford and Taylor in the sense that they're just so big. It's you don't see a move Moodley as other guys. But because they're so big they don't have to move as smoothly. Yeah. Has other guys. It's made to get around. Plus, he's a tempo center. I mean, he's got a punishing attitude. He's got a competitive intensity. And you know, how important that is in your role line room and your practices and on your field. You know, not everybody is a great athlete on the old line. But sometimes the old line is about competing back. Battling just getting the job done any way that you can now you're preaching to the choir. All right. So let's get to the last one. And this is a guy I've enjoyed watching as well. And I'll give you my mic come for him after you break him down Garrett bradberry the center from. He's what he was one of my favorite players to watch on tape. I love Jared bradberry. You know, some people say he's a little smaller than ideal. But I thought he played with high level, competitiveness, consistent efficiency, both physical and mental. He played with unbelievable awareness and intelligence, especially in pass protection. I just think that he's he's terrific prospect, you know, and we don't normally think of centers. But I I just think that this kid is is really really a good player and a good prospect. And and I really enjoyed watching them totally agree. And he reminds me of a few guys undersize centers get really get by based on smart and athleticism. Just some names all throw at you. Greg Tom Nalen? I was that was the first name. I thought of when you said a comparison with time now and yet. I I'll even throw out like Casey week, man. A little bit of Dan copen. I just think he's got that six two lateral agility has a real good feel for things. I mean, he looks like he should be the Denver Broncos center in zone blocking scheme for fifteen years. You know, he just looks like, yeah. That's like their their dream ideal guy. Well, you know, it's funny. I'm you watch him against Clemson. And obviously they play Clemson every year, and he did a really really good job against that. Clemson D line in those interior linemen who will be first round picks more than likely, but you know, again, I just think that he's he's so poised and composed. He's so aware he plays with great intelligence. You know, I love those those centers because so many pass rushes now Ross, particularly in sub fronts the centers on covered as you know. And I love the way he would go after people and look for work. Lay the would to you know, a tackle a defensive tackle who was pass rushing. And you know, I just love the player on tape. Totally agree. That's like my favorite thing. Greg talking with you every week is also one of my favorite things next week. We will start to dive into the defense of side of the ball. Obviously a lot of hype for the guys up front on defense. We'll start with them next week. Thanks so much for the time. As always appreciate a Ross. Thanks. I love the efficiency every time. We talk to Greg Cosell, which is exactly what I also like about Harry's. And you can join the ten million who have tried Harry's. Claim your trial offer by going to harrys dot com slash Tucker. Why are they so officiant? Well, very simple. They combine a simple clean design with quality. Eighty durable blades at a fair price. Harry's bought a world-class blade factory in Germany that been making quality blades

"Really good. Pro kind of reminds me of do Smith Schuster of the Steelers. Underrated but can play anywhere. Great. After the catch the kill Harry from Arizona state, another one that people see the bigger body. Don't see a lot of speed on film. He ran well in the low four or five around six foot three two hundred twenty plus towns well in the vertical close to forty inches. He's been really good at at Arizona state. She was a true freshman at eighteen years old. He was the BUSTER Brown that team even that. So someone that I think late first or early stuck in one other guy. I'll talk about JJ side from Stanford. He yet another receiver in this class that plays like a power forward. He rebounds the football down the field in the red zone. Similar size to he's over six forty is over two hundred and twenty pounds is the draft that you. Want to maybe even double up on the receiver. If your team needs one because there's so many good players that are gonna be instant impact guy from the first of the third last one for Chris Pasu joins us right now. From Indianapolis at the NFL combine works routes here at CBS CBS sports as a draft analyst offensive line, Joe on Taylor, Joan Williams. It seems like those are the two big names with the offensive line. A little bit of some concern. Some people have it on Jona Williams from what I read. But what do you how do you value at this offense align class for this year? Oh, yeah. Those guys are totally different Joyner Williams is a technician he doesn't have the length or the the the girls that size that you'll on Taylor. Does John Taylor is not as fundamentally sound, but you can overpower you one other guy that I'll talk about that. I think is gonna go. We're gonna be talking about a lot. And you're going to hear a lot about the next couple months Andre Dillard, Sherm Washington state. He was the most athletic often to tackle here two days ago and getting so much experience as a pass protector at Washington state and that offense for this year, the football all over the yard has really helped him, and he's definitely the most physically impressive offense lineman that come out of Washington state probably ever and for him to really do all senior bowl and the show that he strong enough there to deal with some powerful rushers and here's the Combi taxes. Well. He did came up the Houston. Texans the Seattle Seahawks. The Minnesota Vikings all sitting there in the early twenties. I think would love to get Andre Dillard, even if they have to plan that right? Tackle you need to have a good, right? Tackle NFL. He just project perfectly. The what the NFL is trending toward a lot of passing. And you need to be a good athlete to play on the edge. Chris thank you so much. We'll catch up with you down the road as we get closer to the draft. Thanks for the insight today. All right. Thanks a lot. Appreciate Christopher Pasa..
