This issue has been discussed several times before.

Your chances this year are very minimal. Because by December, 90% of IMG invitations are over and if you apply without the CS your chances are very low.

I suggest you work on improving your profile for next year.

Yes, your chances are low.
The reason is that they'll filter you out even before they know that you are green card holder or have US LoR.
The first filter is the USMLE scores/first attempt passers in most of the programs. Only when they don't get enough number after that filter, they go and search the lower scores and second attempt passers.
