-- JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Cincinnati Bengals wideout A.J. Green limped off the field with a right knee injury in the first quarter of a preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday and was taken out of the game as a precaution.
Green was examined by an athletic trainer and then walked around the sideline, where he stood without his helmet when the offense returned to the field on its next series.
According to the team, Green "banged up his knee" and would be probable to play next week if it was the regular season.
"I think I just came down on it, banged knees, but I'm fine," Green said during an in-game interview with NBC. "It sucks because I wanted to play a little bit longer."
Green's injury was the second of the night for the Bengals. Cornerback Adam Jones strained a calf while backpedaling in pregame warmups and limped off. He did not play.
Bengals running back and special-teams ace Cedric Peerman then left the game in the second quarter after fracturing his left forearm. He was fitted with an air cast by athletic trainers on the bench.
Green's injury occurred when he was trying to make a cut. After Green planted his leg, he shook out his knee before leaving the field.
