The AP reports Trent Green is "fine" after suffering a concussion Sunday.
Post-game X-rays showed up negative. Green's injury originally appeared to be much more severe, as he lay motionless for several minutes before being carted off on a stetcher. He's still uncertain to play in Week 2 at Denver, a shaky fantasy matchup anyways.

I've had three concussions, I'm not sure you want him playing next week.

The tweetie birds don't go away awhile.

Unless he's 100% better in a couple days (which I doubt), we might as well just hold him out for Denver. It's not like we have much of a chance of winning there anyway, so I'd just get ready for a run after the bye. No need to risk getting him hurt even worse.

I agree with DaFace...but man, that is going to be one ugly game if Huard starts.

We might as well go into FULL Marty mode, run the ball 90% of the time, and PRAY our defense can make Jake the Fake look as bad as he did against St. Louis...

I don't want to see Huard throwing the ball more than 15 times.

I agree. Start Croyle and let him get some real game experience, for possible future situations like this. He's the future, let's start prepping him.

No thanks...

Huard was 'bad', but he still made some throws (12-20)...his career is already wasted, let's not throw Croyle into the fire at all this year...doesn't make sense.

It would certainly be difficult to watch. Not to mention that all the donkey fans will be over here rubbing it in our faces if we look like shit (which would be likely without Trent). It's still the right decision unless he's 100%.

I'm with DeFace and Hootie. Hold Green out and go into the bye 1 game behind Denver.

Maybe we'll get lucky and Black will snap a knee.

On QB Trent Green’s condition: “Obviously a pretty severe head trauma, but he had all his senses and feeling in his arms and legs. Actually, when he did wake up he remembered every play except the one that knocked him out. He’s in the hospital right now, but the preliminary X-rays – and they did them of the neck and head – are all negative. So, we’re being very optimistic and hopeful.

“His family, including his wife Julie, is with him and we’re going to be cautiously optimistic that he’s going to be back, but he’s certainly got a headache right now.”

CASHMAN.

well, we'd have a slim chance against Denver as long as we stick to LJ 30 carries, Bennett 15 carries, defense forces 3 turnovers...

We have to take our licks with Huard and hope Trent's ready by week 4.

Nothing can be gained by starting Huard.

Green is even more likely to be gone after this type of injury and Huard isn't the guy who needs the starting time. Our rookie is the future or he isn't, and the future might be next year...

That puts a ton of pressue on the rookie. Thrusting him out there this week in a hostile Mile Hile may dork with his long-term confidence.
