Virgil Green caught 3-of-4 targets for 21 yards in the Broncos' Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Trevor Siemian was checking down all evening, but looked his tight end's way just four times after he missed the past three games. Green is more of a TE3 than TE2 in an offense that has trouble supporting fantasy options beyond Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas and the running game.
Oct 14 - 12:50 AM

Virgil Green (calf) has been removed from the injury report and will play Week 6 against the Chargers.

The Chargers are allowing the 10th-most fantasy points to tight ends this season, but Green is a weak streamer who missed the previous three games.
Oct 12 - 3:16 PM

Virgil Green (calf) is expected to play Thursday night against the Chargers.

Green somewhat surprisingly sat out Sunday's game against the Falcons, but he should be ready to go this week after getting in a full practice Monday. It is an ugly week for tight-end streamers, but Green is tough to trust coming off a multi-week injury. Green had seven catches for 74 yards in the first two weeks.
Oct 11 - 9:17 AM

Virgil Green (calf) is inactive for Week 5 against the Falcons.

It is a surprise after Green got in three limited practices this week. Jeff Heuerman and John Phillips should once again share snaps in Green's place, but neither is a reliable fantasy option. Will Tye is a great replacement option. He plays against the Packers on Sunday Night Football.
Oct 9 - 2:38 PM

Virgil Green (calf) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Falcons.

We're assuming Green will play based on his return to practice this week; beat writers have stated Green looked fine going through drills. Still, it's not a guarantee. Green is shaping up as a boom-bust Week 5 tight end streamer.
Oct 7 - 2:13 PM

Broncos TE Virgil Green (calf) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Green seems on track to return after missing two games. He's a TE2 dart throw against a Falcons defense that hemorrhages fantasy points to tight ends.
Oct 6 - 4:40 PM

Virgil Green (calf) returned to practice Wednesday.

Green missed the previous two games but is on track to return Sunday against the Falcons. Atlanta has allowed the most yards and fantasy points to tight ends. If he's able to play, Green would be on the streaming radar.
Oct 5 - 2:05 PM

Virgil Green (calf) will resume practicing on Wednesday.

Green will practice "some." It will be a test case to see if he's ready to return after missing two games. At the worst, it sounds like Green should be ready for Week 6.
Oct 3 - 3:28 PM

Broncos declared TE Virgil Green, OLB DeMarcus Ware, OT Donald Stephenson, QB Austin Davis, S Shiloh Keo, OG Connor McGovern and CB Lorenzo Doss inactive for Week 4 against the Bucs.

Green is week to week. He didn't seem particularly close to suiting up against the Bucs, making him shaky for Week 5.
Oct 2 - 2:40 PM

Virgil Green (calf) remained sidelined at Friday's practice and has been ruled out for Week 4.

John Phillips will draw another start at tight end Sunday against Tampa Bay. Green is week to week with a strained calf.
Sep 30 - 1:09 PM

Virgil Green (calf) remained sidelined Thursday.

The Broncos will roll with Jeff Heuerman and John Phillips against the Bucs.
Sep 29 - 2:15 PM

Sep 25 - 11:42 AM

Broncos TE Virgil Green (calf) is only expected to miss one week.

Green is going to sit out the trip to Cincinnati, but he should return next week against the Bucs. The Broncos will go with a committee in his place.
