DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Miami Dolphins quarterback Trent Green said he hopes to play again despite concerns about long-term repercussions from his second severe concussion in 13 months.
Speaking on his weekly radio show Monday on WQAM-AM, Green said all test results so far have been normal. He said he has more tests scheduled Tuesday.
``Right now my mind-set is to come back and play,'' Green said. ``Everything has been real positive up to this point. That has given me great reassurance and given my family great reassurance.''
The 37-year-old Green has been sidelined since a concussion Oct. 7 at Houston left him face down and motionless on the field. He was carted away and taken to a hospital and has since undergone tests in Kansas City and South Florida.
``Everything turned out normal,'' Green said. ``I wasn't having any symptoms in terms of dizziness or headaches or memory loss or balancing problems or sensitivity to light - things that are associated with concussions.''
Green became an expert on the subject while sidelined a year ago following a severe concussion with the Kansas City Chiefs. He sat out eight games and considered retirement.
The latest concussion was also considered severe, but symptoms were less serious, Green said.
``That's what makes this quite a bit different than what happened last year,'' he said. ``Within hours at the hospital I felt completely back to normal.''
Green said he's again studying the ramifications of a return. He mentioned the risk of dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
``I'm trying to gather as much information and read as much as I can and understand what may lie down the road 20 or 30 years from now,'' he said.
Green didn't say how soon he might return to action. He was on the sideline Sunday in Cleveland when the Dolphins lost to fall to 0-6, and he took part in Monday's walkthrough workout.
``I did all the running and lifting and everything else,'' Green said during his radio show.
He was in the locker room following the walkthrough, but the organization declined to let him speak to reporters.
