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.

Even though Green and the Bengals, fortunately, are on bye in Week 9, something tells me this development will turn into something a little bigger than a minor toe injury. Especially with everything up in the air, including a potential surgery. 

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.
