The man on the other end of the phone laughed and seemed sharp, showing very little signs of having been the victim of the most vicious and controversial hit of this young NFL season.

In his first interview since being knocked unconscious by the Bengals DE Robert Geathers, Chiefs quarterback Trent Green spent 30 minutes on the phone with FOX NFL Sunday and FOXSports.com to talk about his condition, the hit, the league's failure to fine Geathers and when he may be back.

"Today (Saturday) is the first day I've really been up and around," said Green, who was good enough to stop by the Chiefs complex for a short period that morning. "I feel OK. The only thing is if I get up too quickly or move too quickly I get a little dizzy."

Green has been taking it easy the last few days, staying in bed for the most part making sure to give his brain time to heal before putting any stress on himself.

His next big day in his recovery comes Tuesday when he'll visit a neurologist in order to better gauge a timetable for a return.

"They told me four to six weeks when it first happened," said Green. "They'll give me an update on that on Tuesday. I absolutely want to play again this year. There's no question. Now I just have to wait until I feel good and listen to the doctors."

Ironically, the problem for Green is the fact he's never had a concussion, so he has no measuring stick to work off of. Everything he's feeling right now is new.

"It's a bit scary but I have to tell you, the team has been great," said Green. "Carl (Peterson), Herm (Edwards) and everyone else has been really supportive and helpful to not only me but to my family."

As for the hit itself and the NFL's decision not to fine Geathers, Green wasn't thrilled with either.

"Am I surprised the NFL decided not to fine him? No. They didn't fine Rodney (Harrison, who went down low and tore Green's knee years ago) for his hit either so I wasn't surprised."

The NFL decided after reviewing the play that Geathers was blocked into Green by WR Eddie Kennison, the hit wasn't late and there was no illegal helmet-to-helmet contact. As a result, Geathers went un-fined by the league.

Does Green agree with the decision?

"Well, they fined three other guys this week for hits on quarterbacks. I know they say Eddie (Kennison) blocked him but do I believe he could have pulled up? I think he could have.

"The rule was imposed to protect the quarterback and when I went to slide I was giving myself up. That means I'm down. I think he could have pulled up. But if the rule is meant to protect the quarterback then it should work to protect him."

Man. First Harrison and now this. Green has just been screwed his whole career.

I am glad he wants to come back. That bye week is a real blessing. Hopefully we can beat the 49ers without him and he gets a solid 3 weeks off.

Priceless!!!

Nice shot there, but now Green can pretty much guarantee that he won't get protected by the refs.


Green gets hit it's a no-call. Palmer gets hit in pretty much the same way and he gets a rule named after him.

Green is the kind of guy that gives everybody the benefit of a doubt and soft peddles any blame. His statement about Geathers not pulling up speaks volumes.

Exactly...........on the other hand, expect Mecca by any time now to tell us all how full of crap Green is and how it was a legal hit.

The more that guy posts, the dumber I think he is.

Yup, again what some of us have been saying. Could he have let up on the hit, yes, did he... No. Of course Carson is lost in a playoff game, rule changes, Green lost in preseason, nothing.

If they had done something to stop the low hits on QBs when Green got hit, Palmer may not have been hurt.
