He is listed as questionable on this week's official injury report.
News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Dec 15): Green was unable to practice Wednesday or Thursday last week due to his injured ankle and ongoing post-concussion woes, he was limited on Friday, and he was inactive on Sunday after being listed as questionable to play on Friday.
General News (Fri Dec 19): practiced fully on Friday but is questionable to play this week.
General News (Thu Dec 18): partially participated in Thursday's practice.
Week 16: at San Francisco 49ers
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Philip Rivers threw 24/41 for 232 yards passing, one TD and two interceptions vs. Denver last week - he did find Antonio Gates for a TD (seven targets for 6/54/1 receiving), but watched Keenan Allen get carted off the field with a broken collarbone (he's almost surely out for several weeks). Michael Floyd (seven for 3/34/0 last week) and Eddie Royal (four for 3/27/0) will have to pick up the slack for Allen over the final two weeks of the season. The Chargers' passing attack is suffering injury attrition (Rivers is battling a sore chest and ribs to stay in the games as well). San Francisco limited Seattle to 12/24 for 138 net yards passing, one TD and one interception last week, and sacked Russell Wilson five times for -30 yards. Two weeks ago, Derek Carr ambushed the 49ers in the Black Hole, throwing 22/28 for 245 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions (with one sack taken for -9 yards). Most weeks, teams have a harder time throwing the ball on San Francisco than Carr did - they average 206.0 net passing yards allowed per game (third in the NFL) with 23 passing scores given out vs. 17 interceptions (tied-fifth) and 32 sacks (tied-19th) generated to date. This is a tough matchup for the visiting Chargers.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 13 vs BAL (2 / 2 / 1 / 0 rec)
Green caught just two short passes (one actually went for negative yardage), and with Antonio Gates so busy, Green took a far back seat in the offense in this game.
2014 Week 14 vs NE (2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Green caught just two relatively short passes, but was involved in what was nearly the most important play of the game. On a crossing route, he had a pass go off his fingertips and into the waiting arms of a New England defender, who returned it for a touchdown. Green was drilled on the play, and a personal foul penalty was called (negating not only the touchdown, but the interception as well). Green did not return to the game after the hit, and appeared very dazed. The hit was near his shoulder area, but his head jerked back violently on the hit, so a concussion cannot be ruled out. As mentioned, prior to the hit he caught just two short passes. One was when he was legitimately the last option for Rivers, who checked down all the way across the field before dumping it off to Green at the last moment. The other was seemingly a designed pass play on a crossing route where Green looked downright Gates-esque, almost mimicking the veteran's signature receiving play.

Our View: Branden Oliver and Donald Brown will split the work in the backfield with neither being a great play because of the Broncos stout run defense. Green being out will help Antonio Gates get an extra target or two.
