    I agree...If he could play he would play ..I am sure he really wants to be out there , I think we can get 2 wins without him ..Let him take the time he needs to get healthy ...He has showed he can be a weapon I just hope his health allows him that chance at some point this post season....

    Stick a fork in him. Hate to say it, but he needs to be thinking about life after football.

    I just don't see how anyone outside of Green, the Coaches or the medical staff can make that determination?

    Pretty sure the medical staff is saying that. That's why no Green tomorrow.

    Glenn, if you will learn the difference between a "determination" and an "opinion" shared on a message board you'd be much happier, lol. Nobody thinks they can give a medical diagnosis on this board. We offer opinions, at times in a very strong way. That's why we're here. Some are under the opinion that Green has underlying issues which could lead him to an early retirement. We haven't medically examined him to know that for sure. Nobody's claiming to be a doctor. We're just impassioned fans who know everything. My opinion is that Green has serious issues. That's not a medical diagnosis. You believe otherwise apparently and that's fine. I respect that. I don't have to agree with you and you don't have to agree with me. It's okay. Really it is.

    Who says I'm not happy?
    Kinda hard to form an educated opinion on something when you don't know the facts of the situation and you're just guessing.
    Guess they'd call that an uneducated opinion?

    Uneducated opinion - Any opinion that doesn't agree with SteelerGlenn's opinion.

    I don't want to write him off either. There is obviously concern for his health, otherwise he would be available tomorrow. That just seems to be a bad sign for his future when you add in the other injuries he's dealt with. He has AT LEAST 3 other concussions in the past 3 years including the one where he was knocked the "F" out. Obviously I'm not a doctor, but there are just too many examples of these types of injuries having permament and serious consequences. If he can play and the docs say he is good to go, then that's great. I fear that he'll be playing not to get hurt like we see so often and usually it means they never get back to where they were or get hurt worse. We'll see what happens.

    2014--- knocked out, concussion

    2015----- two concussions within an 11 day window

    2016----- ankle surgery in Jamuary, doesn't make any OTA's.... Start of training camp put on PUP.... Misses all of camp. 4 preseason games and many rumors about suffering from headaches, first game action was week 10.

    Week 15 concussion vs bungles on a hit that didn't look particularly bad.... Now this will be 3rd week out and still in protocol ...... He may very well be almost done......

    So are we looking at taking a TE in the early rounds?
    Best wishes to Green

    Man when you put it like that it really puts things into perspective. Not trying to start anything but how did our medical staff approve this signing? With all the concussion talk and everything you would think that was a big topic, no? Wishing Green the best hope another week helps him out and he comes back to play 3 monster games for us......

    4 major concussions in less than 3 years. And that only includes the ones we know about... That is the kind of stuff that causes people to forget their kids names and be eating from a tube. Dang, the Steelers don't need him THAT bad. Next man up. Good luck LG.
