A.J. Green among healed Bengals ready for OTAs

A host of players who were hurt in 2016 will be ready to go for OTAs on Tuesday. We explore some storylines to watch as the offseason program resumes.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Bengals begin OTAS on Tuesday, with three practices next week. The first one is open to the media. Rookie wideout John Ross will not attend because he is still in school. His participation would have been limited if he attended because he is still recovering from offseason surgery. Ross is not expected to be medically cleared by the Bengals' minicamp in June.
