Philip Rivers believes Ladarius Green has earned a role when Antonio Gates returns from his suspension.
Gates is due back next Monday night against the Steelers. Green has caught 14-of-18 targets for 174 yards and two touchdowns in three games, missing one with a concussion. "He has had a heck of a (three) games," Rivers stated. "He really has. ... I certainly don't anticipate him on staying on sideline." Oct 5 - 4:40 PM

Ladarius Green secured 4-of-6 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 4 win over the Browns.

Green's highlight was a 19-yard contested catch for a touchdown on a perfect rainbow throw from Philip Rivers in the third quarter. Green played well when available in the first month of the season, but his time as a fantasy option is likely to end with Antonio Gates coming off suspension in Week 5. The Chargers play the Steelers next Monday night.
Oct 4 - 7:40 PM

Ladarius Green is active for Week 4 against the Browns.

He practiced in full on Friday, which was a strong sign Green would play. San Diego's Week 4 inactives are LT King Dunlap, LG Orlando Franklin, C Chris Watt, WR Jacoby Jones, S Jahleel Addae, CB Craig Mager, and OLB Tourek Williams. RG D.J. Fluker is active, but the Chargers are still missing three starting offensive linemen against the Browns.
Oct 4 - 2:36 PM

Ladarius Green (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Browns.

He was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a "full" session on Friday, which bodes well. Still, Green likely needs to pass another step in the concussion protocol before getting clearance to play against Cleveland. If Green can't go, John Phillips would be San Diego's starting tight end. Antonio Gates is eligible to return from his suspension in Week 5.
Oct 2 - 3:18 PM

Ladarius Green (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Green has already suffered two concussions this season and will need to pass the league's protocol before he can play again. John Phillips led Chargers tight ends with 58 snaps last week.
Oct 1 - 4:34 PM

Ladarius Green (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Green missed last week with his second concussion. He's yet to be cleared for full contact and remains in the league's protocol. The Chargers waived TE Kyle Miller, suggesting Green is on track to return.
Sep 30 - 4:49 PM

Ladarius Green (concussion) is inactive for Week 3 against the Vikings.

As is CB Brandon Flowers. CB Jason Verrett is active. RG D.J. Fluker is also returning from his ankle injury. Joining Flowers and Green on the sideline are RB Donald Brown, S Jahleel Addae, OLB Tourek Williams and G Johnnie Troutman. David Johnson is the next man up at tight end.
Sep 27 - 11:37 AM

Ladarius Green (concussion) "seems doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Green made the trip to Minnesota, but was an observer for pre-game warmups. He'll almost certainly sit. We'll have official word by 11:30 ET.
Sep 27 - 11:09 AM

Ladarius Green said he's still dealing with concussion symptoms.

Green was limited in practice and is listed as questionable despite two concussions in an 11-day span. He's reportedly "still experiencing headaches" and has "no clue" if he'll be cleared for contact. The Chargers have yet to rule out Green, but their roster moves this week have his status in doubt.
Sep 25 - 9:28 PM

Ladarius Green (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Vikings after another limited practice on Friday.

After suffering two concussions in an 11-day span, Green's status is wholly uncertain in what would've been a cake matchup against Minnesota's soft middle-of-the-field defense. If Green is announced as active on Sunday, he will be in the back-end TE1 conversation. The Chargers' signing of TE Kyle Miller this week, however, indicates they have their doubts about Green.
Sep 25 - 3:12 PM

Ladarius Green (concussion) participated in Thursday's practice.

We're honestly stunned the Bolts are letting Green practice after he suffered two concussions in an 11-day period, but it appears he has a chance at suiting up for Week 3. The Chargers are playing at 1ET Sunday, so we'll know Green's status before lineups are due.
Sep 24 - 3:09 PM

Ladarius Green suffered his most recent concussion in last Sunday's loss to the Bengals, but it was not discovered until Tuesday.

Green showed up Tuesday with "concussion-like symptoms," and was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's Green's second concussion in an 11-day span, and his third in the last nine months. Coach Mike McCoy indicated the Chargers will treat Green's latest concussion normally, and not necessarily take extra precautions. "He'll go through the normal protocol," McCoy said. "He'll go through the evaluations throughout the rest of the week, and we'll go from there. He'll have an NFL neurologist look at him like we do with any other player at this point in time." Consider Green questionable at best for Week 3 against the Vikings. With Antonio Gates on suspension, John Phillips is next on the tight end depth chart.
Sep 23 - 8:39 PM

Ladarius Green suffered a concussion in Week 2 against the Bengals.

It's Green second concussion this month. Green was listed as limited on Wednesday, but his Week 3 status is in serious doubt. It's possible Green could be looking at a multi-game absence. The Chargers get Antonio Gates back from suspension in Week 5.
Sep 23 - 5:09 PM

Ladarius Green caught 5-of-6 targets for 47 yards Week 2 against the Bengals.

Green had four catches in the second quarter, but the Bengals defense keyed on him and shut him down in the second half. Despite the quiet day, Green tied for the team lead in targets and has proven he will be a large part of the passing offense as long as Antonio Gates is suspended. He will again be a TE1 next week against the Vikings.
Sep 20 - 4:58 PM

Ladarius Green caught 5-of-6 targets for 74 yards and a touchdown Week 1 against the Lions.

Green looked like an elite receiving tight end in this one, showing the speed to make plays up the seams and bouncing off defensive backs when he got to the second level. Green created easy separation on a play action fake for his touchdown in the fourth quarter. He will be a must-start option next week against the Bengals.
