The A.J. Green injury situation appears to have taken a turn for the worse during the Cincinnati Bengals' first day of their bye week.

Reports out of Bengals camp Tuesday confirmed the stud wide receiver was moving around the team locker room in a walking boot, to aid in the healing process of the apparent toe injury Green suffered in Sunday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  

Even though Green's late-game injury didn't appear to be serious, you don't have to be a doctor to deduce that a walking boot for a toe injury doesn't exactly seem like a promising sign for an injury of apparently little significance. 

A toe is one thing, but when you're in a walking boot, there could be much more to this story yet to unfold.

It's hard to say how much this will affect Green's fantasy outlook, especially with the Bengals on a bye this week, but given the considerable amount of time between now and the next time he'll need to be on the field, the Bengals can be careful with their prize wideout.
