Steelers TE Ladarius Green to meet with HC Mike Tomlin about return to practice

Ladarius Green said he planned to have a conversation on Monday afternoon with coach Mike Tomlin to decide whether he'll practice this week. Green is eligible to return from the physically unable to perform list, and the Steelers then have 21 days to activate him once he begins practicing.

"Everything is getting better, everything has progressed pretty well," he said. "I’m just waiting to get the word."

Green said he has voiced he desire to begin practicing to Tomlin.

"He knows I want to be out there, but it’s up to him to do what’s best for the team," Green said. "I’ve agreed with everything he decides like I’ve been doing, and he’ll make the right decision."

Fantasy Impact: 

When Green does return, the Steelers will have a decision to make at tight end. Xavier Grimble or Davis Johnson could get released, or the team could keep four tight ends on the roster and cut someone elsewhere to make room for Green.
