2016 Week 15 vs CIN (8 / 5 / 72 / 0 rec)

Early 3rd quarter on a 3rd and 17, Green was left uncovered streaking down the right sideline for a 23-yard reception. Mid 4th quarter, Green ran a crossing-route for a 10-yard reception. On a 3rd and 8 late in the 4th quarter, Green found a soft spot in the middle of the field and completed a 28-yard reception.

2016 Week 14 vs BUF (6 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Green was still a clear emphasis of the passing gameplan, with two early catches. He was the intended target on one of Roethlisberger's interceptions, coming in the red zone. Green got open deep when Roethlisberger was flushed from the pocket, but the quarterback couldn't make an accurate throw. Another end zone target intended for Green was almost picked. The will was the there, but the execution wasn't, so Green was a Week 14 dud.

Latest NewsSteelers | Pittsburgh expects Ladarius Green back (Fri Feb 17, 10:39 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is expected to be ready for the start of spring practice, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Our View: Green's situation is one to watch, and one to be excited about if he's healthy. He has not been cleared from a concussion he sustained back in Week 15. This offseason, the Steelers should keep him severely limited so that he'll be fresh for the start of training camp.
link to story Steelers | Ladarius Green yet to be cleared (Thu Feb 16, 08:48 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green is not currently in the NFL's concussion protocol, but he's yet to be cleared from a concussion that he sustained in the team's Week 15 game opposite the Cincinnati Bengals. Our View: This is a pretty bad sign. Is this enough to keep him off the field long term? We're tending to think so, given how teams have handled situations like this. Green showed flashes of production this season, but injuries once again derailed his efforts.
link to story Steelers | Ladarius Green likely to stay put? (Tue Feb 14, 11:38 PM) - Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green is likely to remain on the roster, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who believes there is 'no reason for them not to bring him back.' He added: 'His health will determine what happens from there.' Our View: Green flashed ever so briefly in his first season with the Steelers. He was bothered by various injuries and couldn't do much outside of five games. If healthy, Green can be a dangerous weapon for the Steelers high-powered passing attack.
link to story Steelers | PIT can save cap space if Ladarius Green cut (Sun Feb 12, 06:13 PM) - The Pittsburgh Steelers could save $5 million in salary cap space if they released TE Ladarius Green (concussion) with a post-June 1 designation. Our View: Green wasn't healthy in 2016, and was limited to only six games in his first season with the Steelers. He was effective in a couple of those games, and Green showed the ability to be a dangerous weapon within the offense. Green was rumored to be considering retirement before ever playing a down in Pittsburgh, and those rumors might fire up again this offseason.
