Green Bay Packers’ rookie running back Alex Green is done for the remainder
of the season after suffering a left knee injury on a first quarter kickoff. Green will require surgery, but a procedure hasn’t been scheduled yet.
Green will be placed on injured reserve and miss the rest of the season. Because the Packers are in their bye week, there’s no rush to make a roster move.
Greg Jennings had x-rays on his hand on Monday, but they turned up negative. Jennings suffered a hand bruise instead of a break. He’ll be able to return to practice with the team next week.
Defensive back Sam Shields has also been cleared (concussion) for action. He’ll return to practice with the team next week.
