Ladarius Green (ankle) returned to Chargers practice on Thursday.

It's an improvement on last week, where Green didn't practice on Friday, then was active against Kansas City in a limited role. Green will only be a Week 12 fantasy option if Antonio Gates (hip, knee) doesn't face the Jaguars.

Ladarius Green (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Green returned last week, but was held to one catch on 27 snaps. It's not clear if he suffered a setback. Green won't be more than a TE2 for Week 12.
Nov 25 - 5:42 PM

Ladarius Green absorbed one of three targets for nine yards in the Chargers' Week 11 loss to the Chiefs.

It’s a miracle Green even played this week after returning to only a limited practice on Friday. It’s hard to envision Green having much of a role in the Chargers’ passing game while Antonio Gates is healthy. Green will be nothing more than a TE2 next week against the Jaguars.
Nov 22 - 8:34 PM

Ladarius Green (ankle) is active for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Green was expected to miss this game after only returning to practice on Friday but he must have shown the Chargers enough in warmups to get the green light. With Antonio Gates (knee) also active, Green will only be a TE2 in fantasy.
Nov 22 - 2:41 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ladarius Green (ankle) is not expected to play Sunday against the Chiefs.

Green returned to practice on Friday after sitting out the previous three weeks with a sprained ankle. While Green is certainly moving in the right direction, he'll likely need to put in a full week of practice to convince the Chargers he's game-ready. Green isn't much of a fantasy factor now that Antonio Gates is back in the lineup.
Nov 22 - 8:31 AM

Ladarius Green (questionable, ankle) acknowledged Friday that he's unsure of his Week 11 status versus Kansas City.

Green practiced for the first time in almost three weeks Friday, but that may not give him the green light. Players who are truly planning to play tend to be a lot more optimistic than Ladarius sounded following Friday's session. "Hard to say right now," Green said of his Week 11 availability. "I'm hoping for it, but I don't know." Officially, he's a game-time decision.
Nov 20 - 9:12 PM

Ladarius Green (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 11 after returning to practice on Friday.

Green has been sidelined since November 1. He's shaping up as a game-time decision against the Chiefs after being held out of Wednesday and Thursday's sessions, then participating in some capacity on Friday. Despite all of the Chargers' injuries at wide receiver, Green is not a fantasy option until we see him used extensively on the same field as Antonio Gates.
Nov 20 - 3:55 PM

Ladarius Green (ankle) returned to practice on Friday.

Green hadn't practiced since November 1. He had some fantasy relevance earlier this year when Antonio Gates was dealing with an MCL injury but that time has passed. He'll likely draw the questionable tag for Sunday's game against Kansas City.
Nov 20 - 2:21 PM

Ladarius Green (ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Michael Gehlken reports that Green is "getting closer," but it appears he'll miss his second straight game against the Chiefs. If Green did suit up, it would be as a low-end TE2.
Nov 19 - 3:00 PM

Ladarius Green (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Even off the Chargers' bye week, Green still isn't ready. It sounds like he's dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Green could have a role with Keenan Allen (kidney) done for the season, but he needs to get healthy first.
Nov 18 - 3:00 PM

Ladarius Green (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 9.

Green will miss Monday night's game. His absence opens up more targets for Antonio Gates. Green should return after the Chargers' Week 10 bye.
Nov 7 - 2:41 PM

Ladarius Green (ankle) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Having the game on Monday night gives Green a little more time to recover but it's still not looking good. He was wearing a walking boot at Thursday's practice session. His likely absence will open up more targets for Antonio Gates.
Nov 6 - 2:51 PM

Ladarius Green (ankle) watched Chargers practice Thursday with a protective boot on his left foot.

The Union-Tribune San Diego is calling Green's ankle/foot injury a "sprain." The sprain occurred in the first half of last week's loss to Baltimore. Green was ruled out for the remainder of the game early in the second half. Unable to practice so far this week, Green's availability is looking doubtful ahead of Monday night's matchup with the Bears.
Nov 6 - 12:23 AM

Ladarius Green (ankle) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

This won't help his chances of playing Monday against Chicago. The Chargers have a bye week coming up which will give Green time to heal. Antonio Gates is locked in as San Diego's No. 1 tight end and should see a ton of targets with Keenan Allen (kidney) out.
