Packers RB Alex Green has healthy amount of hope.
Green’s return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee did not follow Adrian Peterson’s Hollywood narrative. . . Green’s 2012 season consisted of throbbing, miserable mornings, frustration on Sundays and an anticlimactic limp to the finish line. All along, Green wasn’t himself. His knee never felt right. So even with Green’s future in Green Bay instantly endangered by the addition of a second-round pick (Eddie Lacy) and a fourth-rounder (Johnathan Franklin), he can breathe easy. His body, finally, responds to his brain. Green Bay isn’t kicking Green to the curb, either. Through the team’s organized team activities and minicamp practices open to the media, the 2011 third-round pick started and finished as the No. 1 back.Tyler Dunne of the Journal Sentinel
