When pressed by reporters in Cincinnati on Monday, Green said that he would take the field against Jacksonville, and that his toe injury is progressing.
"I'll practice this week and see how it goes, but I think I'll be fine," Green said. "I was at 40 percent last week and I feel about 80 percent today. I haven't had any soreness after I've worked out."
In some ways, it seems to make more sense to let Green rest for one more week and then jump into action the following Thursday against Cleveland, a divisional game with much more importance.
But Green, who was still putting up impressive numbers before his injury, sounds like he can't wait that long.
