Steelers' Ladarius Green: Eligible to begin practicing
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Green (ankle) is eligible to begin practicing this week, but head coach Mike Tomlin said he still hasn't discussed the tight end's availability with the medical staff, Bob Labriola of Steelers.com reports.

Tomlin will likely have that discussion prior to Wednesday's session, as Green said last week he expects to begin practicing when first eligible. Even if Green's expectation holds true, he could be held out of Sunday's game against the Patriots. With the Steelers on bye in Week 8, the tight end seems more likely to return for Week 9 against Baltimore, though his practice status still bears watching.

Steelers' Ladarius Green: Plans to practice next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (ankle) plans to return to practice next week when he is eligible to do so, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Green remains on the Steelers' physically unable to perform list, but he's trending in the right direction health-wise, and it's within the realm of possibility that he could be activated in advance of the Steelers' Oct. 23 game against the Patriots. Of course, with Pittsburgh on bye in Week 8, it's not hard to imagine the team playing it safe and waiting until Week 9 to roll out Green for the first time, assuming no setbacks.

Steelers' Ladarius Green: Reportedly "doing great" in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Green (ankle) is "doing great", Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Green has been one of the 2016 season's true mysteries, with the Steelers typically only discussing him publicly in evasive fashion, and the tight end doing an excellent job avoiding the media in his own right. At last check in mid- to late September, the 26-year-old Green said he expected to return when first eligible for Week 7 against the Patriots. It's unclear if that remains the expectation, and it's possible there won't be any hints until he starts to practice (or doesn't) next week. If he eventually returns and gets back to full strength, Green would add yet another dimension to an already potent Pittsburgh passing game. However, his targets might be tougher to come by than anticipated during the offseason, as Sammie Coates has emerged as a more than capable replacement for Martavis Bryant (suspension). Jesse James, the fill-in starter at tight end, only has 26 targets through five games, despite playing 96 percent of the team's offensive snaps. Green would likely start off with a much smaller snap count, especially given that James has been reasonably productive on a per-target basis, catching 18 passes for 128 yards and (most notably) three touchdowns.

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.
