Green caught his one target for 14 yards in Monday's 30-27 overtime loss to the Saints. Green received his first first-down reception of the season in the fourth quarter. The Chargers' No. 1 tight end, Hunter Henry, had much more action, scoring a touchdown and catching four of his eight targets, likely as a byproduct of Keenan Allen's (back) first-quarter injury. The 32-year-old Green did play more than he has in the last two games, seeing 35 percent of snaps.
Green (quad) caught one of two targets for 10 yards during Sunday's win over the Bengals. Green was deemed questionable all week with a quad injury, but managed to be active and actually play 24 snaps. Primarily a blocking specialist throughout his career, Green saw just nine total catches last season, his lowest number of receptions since 2014. It appears as if that role won't change much in this campaign either, even with the extra reliance on starting tight end Hunter Henry (eight targets) in the come-from-behind win.
Green (quad) is active for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Bengals. Green held a questionable tag throughout the week due to a quad injury. After logging three consecutive full practices, he'll be ready to serve as the team's second tight end Sunday.
Green (quadriceps) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bengals. Green was a full participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday, so it appears he picked up this injury during Friday's practice. The 32-year-old works mainly in a run-blocking role, but his potential absence would open the door for Stephen Anderson or Donald Parham to play a part in the Chargers' offense.
Green finished the 2019 season with nine catches for 78 yards and a touchdown. Green's 384 offensive snaps were his fewest since the 2015 season with the Broncos, so suffice to say the blocking specialist was hardly a factor in his second season with the Chargers. It's entirely possible the Chargers could opt out of the final year in Green's contract despite the fact he'll cost just $3.5 million against the cap, though the veteran's defined role in the offense, as marginal as it may be, might be viewed a bit more valuable than a simple cap-cutting casualty.
