Green said on Friday that the injury to his left knee was similar to the one he suffered against Pittsburgh in 2011 when he came down awkwardly after catching a touchdown pass while being covered by Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark. When Green hyperextended his knee two years ago, he was out for 10 days, including one game. On Thursday, Green was going for a deep ball up the right sideline when he planted his left foot and then twisted it before falling to the ground. Newman ended up running down an embankment on the sidelines before being able to stop.
