Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is "prepared for anything" amid trade speculation.
Green is yet to feature this season after undergoing ankle surgery in July and is reportedly among a group of players the Bengals are willing to part with after an 0-5 start under first-year coach Zac Taylor.

However, the seven-time Pro Bowler is simply focused on his recovery and intends to roll with punches.
"I tell everybody I haven't heard anything. I don't fantasise about anything like that. I'm just trying to get healthy and go from there," Green told the Bengals' official website.
"I'm prepared for anything. A trade's not going to change who I am. I'm still going to play. I’m still going to be A.J."

Green is in the final season of his four-year, $60million contract and Cincinnati are in a rebuilding period, but the 31-year-old does not intend to leave in free agency if he receives a fair extension offer.
"That's just not who I am. I'm loyal to the person who gave me my shot," Green said. "They took care of Larry [Fitzgerald]. He's a [Arizona] Cardinal. No matter how many times they rebuild, he's a Cardinal. He's the only guy still there."
The Bengals will be without Green against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, but the wideout could return against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7.
