Steelers tight end Ladarius Green on Saturday denied rumors that he's dealing with recurring headaches and reiterated it is his surgically repaired ankle is what is keeping him on the physically unable to perform list.
Speaking for the first time since a NFL Network report Aug. 11 said he was suffering headaches possibly stemming from a pair of concussions during a two-week span last year while playing for the Chargers, Green said he was surprised when he heard about having recurring headaches.
“I don't know what reports those are,” Green said. “I am still on PUP because of my ankle.”
Follow-up reports claimed the Steelers could ultimately release Green, and even Green was contemplating retirement. Hopefully the headache reports are indeed false. Still, Green has missed a big part of camp. He could be a big weapon in the middle of the field for Ben Roethlisberger if he can get healthy.
