    Virgil Green (leg) will be a limited participant in Friday's practice, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.The specifics of what Green will be doing in practice Friday are still unknown, but it's a sign that the tight end is trending in the right direction after suffering a leg injury earlier in the week. Green's status for Saturday's preseason game against the Saints will likely be dependent on his participation over the next two days.

    Chargers' Virgil Green: Returns healthy

    Virgil Green participated at practice Sunday, Eric D. Williams of reports.Green missed Saturday's practice with an undisclosed mild strain, but that evidently didn't linger long. The veteran tight end is firmly behind Hunter Henry on the depth chart and will likely be relegated to a blocking-specific role in two tight-end sets.

    Chargers' Virgil Green: Suffers mild strain

    Virgil Green suffered a "mild strain" in an undisclosed area, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.The ambiguity surrounding the nature of the injury could be a cause for concern, but it's more than likely the Los Angeles Chargers just want to be cautious with their veteran tight end. Green figures to reprise his role as a run blocker in two tight end sets, with the returning Hunter Henry expected to gobble up a significant chunk of the target share left behind following Antonio Gates' departure.

    Chargers' Virgil Green: Ready for No. 2 role

    Virgil Green said that he's excited to have fellow tight end Hunter Henry (knee) back in the fold for 2019, Hayley Elwood of the Los Angeles Chargers' official site reports.After missing the vast majority of the 2018 season while recovering from a torn ACL, Henry has re-established himself as the No. 1 tight end this offseason, pushing Green back to a No. 2 role. However, Green is a nice blocking complement to the receiving-oriented Henry, so there should be plenty of playing time for both in 2019. With Antonio Gates no longer in the fold -- and only likely to be brought back if the aforementioned tight ends succumbed to an injury -- the only remote competition Green legitimately has for backup snaps will come from another blocking specialist in Sean Culkin.

    Chargers' Virgil Green: Gets rare touchdown

    Virgil Green hauled in his lone target for a one-yard touchdown reception Sunday in the Los Angeles Chargers' 41-28 loss to the Patriots in the divisional round.Though Hunter Henry (knee) was cleared to make his season debut, the Chargers limited him to just 14 snaps, resulting in Green and fellow tight end Antonio Gates both maintaining fairly sizable roles in the game plan. While Green has typically seen the larger share of snaps this season, he trailed Gates by a 44-21 margin after the Chargers were forced into catch-up mode after falling behind big early. His run-blocking skills at least worked to his advantage as the Chargers reached the goal line midway through the fourth quarter, when Philip Rivers hit a wide-open Green in the end zone after the Patriots sold out against the run. It was just the second touchdown in 18 total contests for Green, who will likely see an even more muted role in the passing game in 2019 once Henry is fully healthy.

    Chargers' Virgil Green: Critical fumble despite win

    Virgil Green caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 23-17 wild-card win over the Ravens. He also coughed up a critical fumble.That fumble, which came on a play in the third quarter where Green attempted to fight for a first down, directly led to the Ravens scoring their first points of the game. The play capped off what had been an ugly opening three quarters for Green, who missed at least two critical blocks in the first half which led to negative plays. The veteran tight end at least made up for it in the fourth quarter, aiding a Melvin Gordon run near the goal line which was subsequently converted into the Los Angeles Chargers' lone touchdown, but it's safe to say Green has had better days. Antonio Gates (four catches, 35 yards) continued his role as lead receiving tight end Sunday, a fact which should come as no surprise to fantasy owners who hoped to utilize Green this season.

    Chargers' Virgil Green: Snares two receptions

    Virgil Green caught both of his targets for 12 yards in the loss Saturday to the Ravens.Believe it or not, the 12 receiving yards is actually Green's best figure since Week 11, as the veteran tight end has been used almost entirely as a blocking option in his first season with the Los Angeles Chargers. Notably, Green needs just 17 more receiving yards to set a career high, but that doesn't mean much for fantasy owners who expected more production from him in 2018.

    Chargers' Virgil Green: Catches two passes

    Virgil Green caught two of his three targets for nine yards in the win Thursday over the Chiefs.Green saw 38-year-old tight end Antonio Gates catch four passes for 54 yards, reaffirming what has been a troubling trend all season - that being the former's inability to make any headway in the passing game. Green will aim to beat his career high in receiving yards (237) during the final two weeks of the regular season.

    Chargers' Virgil Green: Catchless in blowout win

    Virgil Green failed to reel in his only target during Sunday's 45-10 win over Arizona.Green came into Sunday on a relative streak given his block-first reputation, catching two passes in three consecutive games. Sunday marked Green's third catchless outing of the season. Despite being known for his athleticism as a receiver in college, Green was always more effective in the run-blocking and pass-protection sectors in Denver, and that hasn't changed much in L.A. Sunday brings a visit to Pittsburgh's top-10 pass defense.
