AFC South rumors: Green, Hines-Allen, Radunz

The Texans were forced to scramble last year when the starting point guard in his second year Kenyon Green had season-ending shoulder surgery in the preseason. The team opted to trade with the similar name Kendrick Green (no relation) to start in his place, but were thrown for a loop late in the season.

After sitting out the team’s season opener as he was still getting familiar with the offense, Green started the next three games at left guard for Houston. Unfortunately, near the end of the game against his former team, the Steelers, Green suffered an injury that, while not tearing any ligaments, still required meniscus surgery that would keep him out the rest of the year.

According to KPRC 2’s Aaron Wilson, Green is now fully recovered and will be back in training camp. Kenyon Green was also recently reported to be back to full strength, so now both healthy Greens will compete for the starting left guard job.

Here are some other notes coming out of the AFC South:

  • To the relief of many sportswriters, one particular Jaguars the outside linebacker will no longer have the exact same name as a player he could sack. From now, Josh Allen it will be possible to be fired by Josh Hines-Allen. Hines-Allen posted the news on his X account, saying, “The legacy is forever and I’m proud to carry that tradition on the back of my jersey, following in the footsteps of my family who wore the last Hines-Allen. name with such pride and joy.”
  • At a glance titanium“Battles at the right guard and right tackle positions almost three weeks ago, I noticed that a healthy Nicolae Petit-Frere had the potential to win the starting tackle job, which could push last year’s starter to the position, Dillon Radunz, back inside to guard. According to a training camp preview from Titans head writer/editor Jim Wyatt, it looks like we’re seeing that come to fruition. Wyatt claims the team has “locked in” Radunz at guard, where he will now compete with Daniel Brunskill and Saahdiq Charles for the starting role.
