Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin hasn’t said much about the situation involving tight end Ladarius Green, and after Friday night’s preseason game Tomlin again declined to comment on recent reports that recurring headaches have kept Green out.
Green hasn’t practiced with his new team in the spring or the summer. He signed a four-year, $20 million deal with the Steelers in March.
He’s on the active/physically unable to perform list, and when he was asked specifically about it Friday Tomlin said offseason ankle surgery is the reason Green remains on the PUP list.
Tomlin hasn’t said much when previously asked about Green, and maybe he doesn’t know whether Green will be cleared to return. The Steelers retain the option to keep Green on PUP if there’s no resolution on the matter by the time the regular season begins.
