Steelers' Ladarius Green: Aiming for Week 7 return
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Green (ankle) believes he'll be ready to return in Week 7 against the Patriots, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "It's a good possibility," he said Monday. "We'll see. I don't want to jinx it, but the rehab is going good. My ankle feels good running."

Green's first training camp and preseason as a Steeler was fraught with conflicting reports about his continued absence, with headaches and a slow recovery from offseason ankle surgery alternating as the culprit. However, the organization ended speculation between the third and fourth exhibitions, placing the tight end on the PUP list. Missing the first six games of the campaign has given Green additional time to complete his rehabilitation. Unfortunately for him, league rules won't allow him to practice until Oct. 17 -- or one day after Pittsburgh's Week 6 tilt in Miami -- leaving very little time to prove his health in advance of the aforementioned showdown with the Patriots.

Steelers' Ladarius Green: Ruled out for first six games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Green (ankle) was transferred to the regular-season PUP list Tuesday, ruling him out for the first six games of the year, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Green has recovered from January ankle surgery much slower than expected, with his continued absence from practice even stirring rumors that he's still bothered by symptoms from a concussion he suffered early last season. He recently shot down those rumors, speaking publicly for one of the few times since he signed a four-year, $20 million contract in March. The 26-year-old tight end did admit that his ankle is progressing slowly, as he only recently started bearing weight on the affected leg. The Steelers hope to have him back by midseason, but it does seem there's at least some chance Green ends up missing the entire year. Jesse James has filled in as the starting tight end this preseason, with David Johnson and Xavier Grimble also picking up some first-team snaps.

Steelers' Ladarius Green: Adds to rehab
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Green (ankle) has recently added weight-bearing activities to his rehab workouts, PennLive.com reports.

Green has been stuck on the Steelers' PUP list since the start of training camp after having offseason ankle surgery but has added to his workouts lately in hopes of returning soon. The tight end has squatted with weights on his back, pulled weights across the field and began jumping again in recent days. While there's still no timeline for Green's return, he at least seems to be making progress. That being said, it appears unlikely Green will be ready for the start of the regular season, leaving Jesse James and David Johnson as Pittsburgh's top tight ends in the meantime.

Steelers' Ladarius Green: Slow going with ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler relays that Green told him that he's holding out hope to be ready for Week 1, but notes that the tight end acknowledges his ankle rehab is going "very slow."

While the report does not address speculation that the tight end has been dealing with headaches, Green, in any case, maintains that his continued presence on the PUP list is related to his ankle issue. With the NFL regular season quickly approaching, Green's Week 1 status remains cloudy, a situation that could lead to fellow TE Jesse James carving out some deep-league fantasy utility out of the gate.

Steelers' Ladarius Green: Says ankle is the issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

When asked Saturday if he was dealing with headaches as has been speculated, Green reiterated that the reason for his continued presence on the Steelers' PUP list is his ankle issue, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "I don't know what reports those are," Green, noted on the matter of his health. "I am still on PUP because of my ankle. I have still be rehabbing on my ankle, so I haven't been dealing with anything else but that."

Moreover, the tight end -- who signed a four-year, $20 million contract with the Steelers in March -- went on to refute the notion that retirement has entered his mind at this stage, indicating that he continues to work toward a return to the field. On that front, Green acknowledges that he still has some work to do, with a specific timetable for his return not offered. "It is still weak," Green said of his surgically-repaired ankle. "But it is getting a lot better. The ankle still isn't 100 percent yet. It is still not there yet. There is still stuff I have to work on. There is still stuff I am pushing toward, but it is getting better." On the plus side, the report relays that Green indicates that he has been working out daily, with his activities including running routes, blocking and sprinting at full speed. With the regular season fast approaching, the Steelers will need to make a call on Green's roster status within the next couple of weeks. If he ends up on the team's regular-season PUP list, he'd miss at least six weeks of action. Such a potential outcome remains speculative however, with Green suggesting that at this time he is "just going to take it day-by-day."
