Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver/punt returner Rashad Greene has won AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after a 73-yard punt return for a touchdown against the hapless Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Greene is the first Jaguars receiver to win AFC Special Teams Player of the Week since 1998 when Reggie Barlow won it in Week 2 with three punt returns for 172 yards and one touchdown.

On the season, Greene has 11 punt returns for 230 yards and one touchdown and would have had two if he could have gotten a couple more yards on a long return against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football. He holds a 20.9 yards-per-return average. He also has 16 catches for 87 yards and two touchdowns.
