WATCH: Ladarius Green not sure if he'll face Patriots on Sunday

Ladarius Green is excited to finally be back on the field for the first time since becoming a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Green has been inactive since undergoing ankle surgery this past offseason. 

Green, who signed a four year, $25 million contract back in March, is slated to begin practicing with the team on Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's game against the Patriots. And while he will practice, Green said that he isn't sure whether or not he will play in Sunday's game against New England. 

"I really don't know, that's for the coaches, I have no idea," Green said about playing Sunday. "I feel pretty good. It's been a while since I played. It's been a while since I even practiced, so I'm excited to get back out there and see what I can do."

Green added that jumping was one of his biggest hurdles on his road to recovery. Now, Green says he can do everything necessary to make up for lost time, as Green has been diligently studying the team's play book during his time on the mend. 

"I feel like I retired and came back," Green said. "It's been frustrating, but the guys have been helping me out a lot. I'm just trying to make the team and get on the team right now."
