Green (hamstring) was waived with an injury settlement by the Colts on Thursday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
Green sustained the hamstring injury in late August and was waived/injured at roster cutdowns. The 23-year-old cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, but can sign elsewhere after reaching the injury settlement.
Green (hamstring) was waived-injured by Indianapolis, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
He'll likely be placed on IR if he clears waivers. The Colts selected Green in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 57th overall, but he never stuck at corner and was moved to safety where he struggled to find a sizeable role.
Green (hamstring) is listed as week-to-week after suffering a hamstring injury in Saturday's preseason game, ESPN 1070 am Indianapolis reports.
His status for the start of the regular season is in question as a result. Malik Hooker and Clayton Geathers have returned from injuries and look set to start at safety, but the Colts could have depth issues with Green and Ronald Martin (shoulder) hurt.
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.
