Greene, drafted in the fifth round, underwent surgery on his right thumb Tuesday and was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list. That means Greene can't return to practice until Nov. 3 and won't be able to play until Nov. 19 against Tennessee. A team can only use the designation once.
The former Florida State standout suffered the injury in Sunday's 23-20 win over Miami. He dropped two passes in the game. On the season, Greene has nine catches for 35 yards and a touchdown.
