Ladarius Green underwent ankle surgery in January, and is currently on Pittsburgh's PUP list. No other details are available.

Summary

Ladarius Green has been on fantasy owners radar since coming into the league as a fourth-round pick of the San Diego Chargers in 2012. Green was supposed to be the next great Chargers TE as he was being groomed behind their superstar Antonio Gates. While the Chargers wanted him to flourish as a receiver in their offense, Green mostly disappointed during his time with the Chargers--even as Gates fought through injuries. Green had a career-high 63 targets, 37 receptions, 429 yards and four touchdowns in 2015. It wasn't enough for the Chargers to keep him in free agency, and he's found a new home with the Steelers. With Heath Miller retired, the Steelers are looking for a new lead TE for their explosive offense and Green will get the first crack to be that guy. If he finally plays up to his potential, Green has the ability and is in the system to be at least a high-upside TE2 for fantasy owners in 2016. (May 18)

Latest News

Steelers | Ladarius Green placed on PUP list (Thu Jul 28, 05:06 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 28.

Our View: Green has so much talent but his constant injuries hold him back. We think he has the ability to be a TE1, but this setback is a concern so at best he's a TE1/TE2 and someone we now have to watch in camp.
