KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Sept. 28, 2006) -- Kansas City quarterback Trent Green says the severe concussion that left him unconscious on Sept. 10 will keep him sidelined at least two more weeks.
Speaking with Kansas City reporters for the first time since the head-snapping hit in the season opener, the two-time Pro Bowler said that he's feeling much better and finally able to drive a car. He may even join the Chiefs on the sideline for their game against San Francisco.
"It's just a day-to-day, week-to-week thing. That is what the doctor told me my last visit last week, to not expect anything other than that," he said.
"Everybody handles it differently. Every concussion is different."
Getting back by Oct. 8 against Arizona, he said, would not "be reasonable."
"They're going to want me to practice at least some prior to that point. I know I won't practice this week. It remains to be seen if I'm going to do any next week. So considering by that point in time I will have missed three weeks, to all of a sudden practice and play in one week, that would be reaching."
