Sort of the forgotten man in the secondary this spring. That’s what shoulder surgery will do. But one of the most experienced defensive backs is expected to be part of the rotation this fall.

Green, who has 22 career starts, understood the scheme’s concepts well enough to begin taking game reps at the dime spot — and at cornerback — during the second half of last season. That’s the kind of knowledge that comforts coaches who don’t tolerate mistakes.

He has areas to improve — giving up a 75-yard touchdown against Georgia still stings. But Green should be ready for a fast start to preseason camp after months on the sideline.
