MIAMI (AP) -Miami Dolphins quarterback Trent Green was placed on injured reserve Saturday, shelving him for the rest of the season following his second severe concussion in 13 months.
Green said he has made no decision about trying to play next year. A series of test results were normal following the latest injury Oct. 7, but doctors were concerned about possible long-term effects and declined to clear the 37-year-old Green to play.
By putting him on injured reserve, the Dolphins freed up a spot on the 53-man roster, which they used to activate receiver Kerry Reed from the practice squad.
``At this point, this is the best thing for Trent and the team,'' coach Cam Cameron said in a statement. ``The doctors have prescribed rest for now. No long-term decisions regarding Trent's future have been made.''
