Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green's ominous toe-injury-turned-walking-boot concern from Week 8 has taken a turn for the worse.
Green's injury status has quickly gone from something that looked like a minor toe ailment to a concerning foot injury and now to an issue that requires a foot specialist's medical attention.
#Bengals star WR AJ Green was slated to visit foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay during the bye, sources say, as his toe swelled up. Clarity is coming soon, with everything — day-to-day, week-to-week, surgery — on the table for Green. Big appointment.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 4, 2018
Bengals’ WR AJ Green is scheduled to meet with Dr. Robert Anderson this week to diagnose his foot injury, per source. They will try to figure out if surgery is needed but for now, Green - who is still in a walking boot - is expected to miss “some games”.

Fantasy owners probably shouldn't hit the panic button just yet, but preparing to hear more bad news concerning Green's status for Week 10 would be wise.
We already know he's expected to miss "some games," but things could get worse in the not-to-distant future.
