An Open Letter to Trent Green
Sunday, you got kneed in the head for a Grade 3 concussion, the worst type of such an injury. This is not your first rodeo, as far as this is concerned. You are also - words hurt, but its true - not such a great QB anymore.
Dolphins coach Cam Cameron said today that quarterback Trent Green on Sunday suffered a Grade 3 concussion - the most severe form - and is out for the upcoming game in Cleveland. His status beyond Sunday's game is unknown.
Green, 37, was hurt when he tried to block a lineman on a busted play in Houston and was kneed in the head. He was briefly hospitalized. It was Green's second severe concussion in 13 months.
Asked if Green was considering retirement, Cameron said, "We haven't gotten to that point." Green's concussion last year knocked him out for half the season.
Symptoms of a Grade 3 concussion include loss of consciousness and no memory of the blow that caused it.
It's time. Get out while you can still remember your name.
