Green posted four tackles (three solo), two pass breakups and a sack in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Colts. Green led the Seahawks' deep group of defensive ends with 53 snaps, and he capitalized on the opportunity with his eighth career sack. The 2018 third-round pick is explosive off the line and will likely maintain his lead role for the time being. In Week 2, he'll take aim at Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was sacked five times in the opener.
The Seahawks activated Green (neck) from injured reserve Saturday, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Green has looked good enough through two weeks of practice to return to action for Sunday's game versus the Bills. L.J. Collier handled the starting duties while Green was out, but now Carlos Dunlap, whom the Seahawks acquired via trade from the Bengals, is in the fold and could eat into Green's workload. Rookie Alton Robinson has been impressive as well. Green will have to battle to secure a consistent snap share on this defense, and most of the pass-rushing work will be designated for Dunlap and Robinson for now.
Green (neck) has been designated to return from injured reserve, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Green hasn't played since the season opener, but according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, the third-year defensive end out of USC is expected to return to the lineup Sunday against the 49ers. L.J. Collier and Benson Mayowa are the team's starting defensive ends, although Green and Collier essentially split time Week 1. However, the Seahawks acquired veteran defensive end Carlos Dunlap via trade from the Bengals on Wednesday, so both Green and Collier likely will forfeit snaps moving forward.
Green (neck) has been deemed doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Patriots, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Green was unable to practice all week after injuring his shoulder in last week's season-opening victory over the Falcons. As a result, it looks very unlikely that he will be able to suit up in Week 2, but he has not officially been ruled out yet. Should he ultimately get ruled out, look for L.J. Collier to to see the majority of reps at defensive end opposite Benson Mayowa.
Green (neck) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Green sustained a shoulder injury during this past Sunday's win over the Falcons and was able to finish the game, but his current injury could be related. The third-year DE split reps evenly with L.J. Collier in the opener, but, for the time being, Collier will prepare for a starting role with Green's status uncertain for Week 2 against New England.
