A.J. Green stood at his locker Sunday afternoon, knowing full well what was coming. “Whatever my punishment is, I accept it,” he said. “I put myself in that situation.” On Monday, the National Football League did not hand down a punishment in the form of a suspension for the Cincinnati Bengals’ Pro Bowl wide receiver following his fight with Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey at EverBank Field. He is being reviewed, however, for a potential fine. Green stood to lose a game check of about $600,000 if he was suspended for at least one contest. Before a decision was made Monday, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said he was disappointed in Green taking himself off the field. "Yes, and he is, too," Lewis said. "He's disappointed and he's apologized for his actions." Following a run play on the second-to-last play of the first half and with the Bengals trailing 13-7, Ramsey knocked Green to the ground from the side. Green got up and twice took Ramsey to the turf by the neck. Green also threw about four punches to the head and neck area of Ramsey.
