Green will stay at safety after moving between cornerback and safety last season, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Green was a surprise starter at cornerback in Week 1 of last season after failing to play the position in 2016. He struggled and soon headed to the bench. Later in the season he was moved to safety, which looks permanent now. He'll begin the season as a reserve and need to work his way back into the mix for playing time.
Green's season stats look quite similar to his rookie season (43 tackles, 32 solo), and he didn't see a consistent defensive role until the second half of the season. The 22-year-old is likely to start the 2018 season as a reserve safety, but a solid training camp could create an opportunity for him to potentially carve out a starting role.
Green (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Since logging 62 defensive snaps in the opener, Green has been limited to six or fewer defensive snaps in five of the Colts' last six games, but he should be in store for one of his largest workloads of the season Sunday. With Malik Hooker (knee) moving to injured reserve this week and Rashaan Melvin (concussion) out, Green should see plenty of reps in nickel and dime packages even if he doesn't start.
Green had five total tackles in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville.
Green hadn't played more than six snaps on defense after he struggled in a starting role in Week 1, but was pressed into action after several members of the secondary got hurt. He could return to the starting lineup with injuries to Malik Hooker and Rashaan Melvin.
Green played just one snap on defense as he lost his starting cornerback role to Quincy Wilson.
Green started at cornerback in Week 1, but struggled in pass coverage in his first playing time at the position after converting from safety. He may have a limited role off the bench and may be used at both safety and cornerback as a result.
