The injury originally occurred on October 28th against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which caused him to miss three games. Despite the surgery, Green is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for OTA's next spring.
The injury on Sunday was a non-contact play, as Green was very emotional while getting wheeled off at Paul Brown Stadium. He was seen in a walking boot within the team's locker room on Monday, as the news was revealed later in the evening. This comes one week after he claimed to have no thoughts of shutting things down for the season. This is the second time in his career that his season has been cut short, as it also was in 2016 due to a hamstring tear.
Green is now the 15th player that the Bengals have placed on injured reserve since training camp this season. That list includes Dalton, Tyler Eifert, and Ryan Glasgow, which has played a major role in their season flipping upside down quickly. After a hot start, Cincinnati now sits in third place in the AFC North with a 5-7 record, just a half-game better than the Cleveland Browns.
