Chargers TE Ladarius Green (concussion, questionable) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 1. Green still has to pass through the league’s concussion protocol, but it could happen by Sunday. We should have a better idea on Saturday. Newly-signed John Phillips would get the start if Green can’t play. If Green does play, he’s a low-end TE1 option and a Sneaky Start.

Chargers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice. Green is very likely to miss Sunday’s game against the Lions. John Phillips will get the start at tight end, but expect the Chargers to utilize Stevie Johnson and Malcom Floyd more heavily with Green sidelined. It’s a slight downgrade for Philip Rivers.

Jason Witten doubtful to play in Week 1

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is now doubtful to play with the lacerated spleen injury. Witten visited the doctor Tuesday morning for a scheduled checkup. He is still expected to make the trip to New York.

Fantasy Impact:

This is a blow to Tony Romo who is better when he has his safety blanket to throw to. John Phillips would likely get the start if Witten can't go.

DAL TE John Phillips does have torn ACL

ESPN Dallas - [Full Article]

An MRI confirmed the Dallas Cowboys' fear that tight end John Phillips tore the ACL in his right knee during the Hall of Fame Game, a source with knowledge of the situation told

Phillips, a sixth-round pick who contributed as a rookie last season, is out for the season.

Phillips, who underwent the test Monday morning, believes he injured the knee Sunday night when he landed after catching a back-shoulder throw from Jon Kitna. It was the second of four receptions for Phillips, who left the game after he collapsed while battling with Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Frostee Rucker as he tried to release into a pass route.

DAL TE John Phillips could have torn ACL

Monday, August 9, 2010, 8:28am

Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

The Cowboys were not able to get out of the Hall of Fame unscathed injury wise, losing tight end John Phillips with a likely torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

He will get an MRI on Monday.

"I'm going to stay positive and wait for [Monday] and see what the doctors get confirmed," Phillips said. "Regardless of what they say something's got to be confirmed on a screen so until they show it to me, I'm going to stay positive."

Phillips had four catches for 60 yards and two springing blocks in the first half before suffering the injury. Martellus Bennett did not play Sunday with an ankle injury and Kevin Brock sprained his left ankle, leaving Scott Sicko as the only healthy tight end Sunday.

Wade Phillips just announced tight end Martellus Bennett will not play Sunday against San Diego.

Bennett is suffering from a concussion that occurred against the New York Giants. He has not practiced this week.

Rookie John Phillips will see more playing time than he has all season. Wade Phillips said it was unlikely that Scott Chandler would be called up from the practice squad.

Safety Ken Hamlin was also ruled out with his high right ankle sprain.

Concussion symptoms KO Bennett

Friday, December 11, 2009, 11:03am - [Full Article]

Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett missed a second straight practice Thursday because of concussion-related symptoms.

Bennett did not report any problems during the loss against the Giants, but he's since complained of headaches, fogginess and that "his eyes were hurting," coach Wade Phillips said.

Bennett has seen a specialist and continues to be monitored.

In his second season, Bennett is sixth on the team with 15 catches for 159 yards. Dallas uses two tight ends on most plays.

If he misses the game, rookie John Phillips likely would handle most of Bennett's usual workload.
