“I just had one,” Green said. “Everything went well, but it is just taking longer than we expected.”
Green added that he’s still expecting to return in Week 7.
“It’s going well,” Green said of the rehab process. “Yeah, I hope (to return for Week 7). That’s what I am aiming for to be able to get back.”
