Dolphins Place T. Green on IR List
The Miami Dolphins placed quarterback Trent Green on the injured reserve list today, ending his season.
Green has been sidelined since suffering his second severe concussion in the past two seasons and doctors have not cleared him to return to play.
It is not clear at this point whether the 37-year-old quarterback will retire.
"At this point, this is the best thing for Trent and the team," Dolphins Coach Cam Cameron said in a written statement released by the club. "The doctors have prescribed rest for now. No longterm decisions regarding Trent's future have been made."
Cleo Lemon has taken over as the Dolphins' starter at quarterback, and Green likely will remain around the team in a coach-like capacity.
"I appreciate the way the organization has handled this," Green said in a written statement. "I realize this is in the best interest of my longterm health, and I want nothing but the best for the team. Right now I haven't made any decisions about my future, but I talked with the Dolphins about staying involved in some capacity the rest of the season."
