Green (illness) will be out for at least one month, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports. Green was placed on injured reserve Monday. The power-play quarterback is dealing with a virus that attacks the liver.
Green (illness) was put on injured reserve Monday. It was already established that Green would miss the start of the season with a strange virus in his liver, but the placement on injured reserve clarifies the situation a bit. Detroit isn't looking to contend this year, so there is no reason for them to try and hurry the 32-year-old back into action. There is no way to set a reasonable timetable for his return without some pretty specific medical knowledge that we simply don't have.
Green (illness) will miss the start of the regular season, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Battling a liver-attacking virus, the Red Wings have yet to pinpoint a timetable for his return, which isn't surprising given the nature of the bug. The veteran blueliner has reportedly made some positive strides forward recently, so it's possible he won't wind up missing too much time to begin the campaign because of it. Regardless, Detroit could bring an extremely young blue line crew to the rink Opening Night with Danny Dekeyser (upper body), Trevor Daley (lower body) and Jonathan Ericsson (upper body) all questionable for Opening Night.
Green (illness) remains without a timetable for his return, though he is feeling better, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports, citing Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill. According to St. James, Green rode a (stationary) bike Tuesday, and early indications point to the veteran making progress in his recovery from a virus that's been attacking his liver and causing him to feel fatigued. Still, it wouldn't be surprising if the club ends up adding extra depth on the blue line in case Green gets a late start to the new season. Robbie Russo was waived by the Coyotes on Tuesday, so there's a chance that he could reunite with the Original Six club.
Green has been diagnosed with a virus that is attacking his liver and causing fatigue, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. Green will meet with an infectious-disease specialist to determine his next course of action, but at this point his status for Detroit's Oct. 4 season opener against Columbus is in serious jeopardy. Until more is known, fantasy owners who are considering drafting the veteran blueliner shouldn't count on him being available for the start of the campaign. A more clear-cut timetable for Green's recovery should be established after his appointment with the specialist.
