Trent Green returned to practice this week just in time to see back-up Damon Huard injured in practice Thursday. The injury to Huard was not released, and his status for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks is unknown.
Huard’s injury does not mean an early return for Green. If Huard is not cleared to play, third-string rookie Brodie Croyle will make his first NFL start. Green has not been cleared for contact yet, but is eyeing a return against the Dolphins Nov. 12.
