Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green won't be suiting up in October.

The veteran blue-liner has been sidelined with a virus that kept him out of the lineup for the entire preseason. While the initial diagnosis was that Green could miss the start of the season, Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill said that Green will be out for at least a month, according to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press

It's been a troubling last few months for Green on the injury front. After missing the final nine games of 2017-18 due to a neck injury, he underwent cervical spine surgery at the end of the season.

Green has spent the past three seasons with the Red Wings. He inked a two-year, $10.75-million extension with Detroit this summer.
