Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was spotted with his right foot in a walking boot Tuesday.

Green appeared to injure his toe while reeling in an 11-yard pass from Andy Dalton in the waning moments of the Bengals’ 37-34 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The seven-time Pro Bowl selection told reporters he was fine after the game, however.

There was no official word from the Bengals on the severity of the injury for the 30-year-old Green, who will have extra time to recover with the team on its bye week. Cincinnati (5-3) returns to action against the high-powered New Orleans Saints on Nov. 11.

Green has recorded 45 catches for 687 yards and six touchdowns this season.

While the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Green leads the team in receiving yards and scores, fellow wideout Tyler Boyd has a club-best 49 receptions to go along with 620 yards and five touchdowns. Running back Joe Mixon is third on the team with 19 catches.

Green has eclipsed 100 yards receiving in a franchise-best 32 games in his career. He has 601 receptions for 8,900 yards and 63 touchdowns in 110 contests since the Bengals selected him with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
