Steelers tight end Ladarius Green remains in the concussion protocol after being injured against the Bengals late in last Sunday’s game.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Green was visiting with a doctor at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for an evaluation of his injury.
Tomlin said that Green’s history with concussions is not making the team handle this injury any differently than they would under other circumstances.
“We’ll follow the protocol to the letter as we always do,” Tomlin said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “His level of participation is an indicator of where it’s going or not going.”

There were reports during the offseason that Green was dealing with lingering symptoms from a concussion he suffered last season, although the Steelers and Green said that an ankle injury was the reason for his absence from the field. Jesse James would see a larger role if Green can't play in Week 16.
