This operation will not change his timetable to return to the field. Green is expected to miss approx. two months.

He was injured on Sunday when the team practiced at Welcome Stadium in Dayton, Ohio. That’s where the first NFL game took place between the Dayton Triangles and the Columbus Panhandles.

This was part of the NFL’s 100 year anniversary initiative. Green tore ligament in his left ankle when he got injured, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The 30-year-old Summerville, South Carolina native was the team’s fourth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He has spent eight seasons with the team.

Green is coming off of a season in 2018 that he made nine appearances, including nine starts. He had 46 receptions for 694 yards and six touchdowns.

He only had two games during the 2018 season with more than 100 receiving yards in a game. He had a season-high 117 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in a 45-10 loss on October 21st.

Green also had 112 yards against the Miami Dolphins in a 27-17 win on October 7th.

The nine games were his fewest in a season since he appeared in 13 games during the 2014 season. The 694 yards are the fewest yards he has had in a season.
