Tion Green only carried the ball seven times, but he turned it into 43 yards and a touchdown. His score was a goal-line carry.
Green is a fascinating prospect going forward, for both next week and next year. With nothing to play for in Week 17, the Lions will likely feature Green more heavily, and if they do he's more than start-worthy. Next year the Lions can part ways with Ameer Abdullah, who will be in the final year of his contract, as well as Zach Zenner, who will be a free agent. They might hold on to Dwayne Washington for his special teams contributions, be he's as easy cut money-wise too. Green hasn't caught a pass all year, which makes him a good partner for Theo Riddick, who is just as one-dimensional in the opposite sense. Keep an eye on this kid going forward.
