Miami Dolphins quarterback Trent Green will soon make a decision on whether he will retire after he undergoes more medical testing after suffering a concussion against the Houston Texans, a source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Green has been advised to not speak publicly to the media but in a text message he said that neuropsychological testing last week provided "good results." He acknowledged that he had a decision to make.

Earlier this week Green underwent tests in Kansas City for a severe concussion, his second in 13 months. Green was encouraged from those tests and feels good, coach Cam Cameron said Thursday, but the Dolphins are awaiting additional results from specialists.

"We just need to let some time go by here," Cameron said. "They recommended some rest. They just all want to let the thing settle down and make sure we know what all took place." The 37-year-old Green was knocked unconscious with a Grade III concussion, the most severe, in last Sunday's loss at Houston. He's out indefinitely, and it's uncertain whether he'll play again.
