He is now expected to be sidelined 6-8 weeks with torn ligaments in his left ankle, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Sunday.

Some were quick to blame the field conditions at Dayton’s Welcome Stadium for Green's latest injury woes.

“The turf was terrible,” Bengals wideout Tyler Boyd told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I couldn’t run any routes out there. I’m falling all over the ground. It was bad. It was rocks, pebbles out there.”

Malone simply added, "It was bad."#Bengals
