TE Ladarius Green, who signed with the Steelers during free agency, was placed on the physically unable to perform list prior to the start of the regular season, requiring him to miss the first six games of the year. He is now eligible to return and is hoping that he can get on the field this week in practice and be ready to go.
“I might finally get a chance to go on the field and play and practice,” said Green. “That is exciting. I feel pretty good. It’s been a while since I have played, a while since I have practiced. I feel good. I am excited to get back out there and see what I can do.”

Green said any decision on a timetable for his return is up to the coaches, and with the way the tight ends, including Jesse James, Xavier Grimble and D.J. Johnson are playing, he knows he has a lot to prove, the story said. Green has been dealing with an ankle injury that has sidelined him for months now, but said the last obstacle to overcome was the ability to jump on it, something he is comfortable with now.
