Steelers say Ladarius Green remains in concussion protocol

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Ladarius Green is still in the concussion protocol, head coach Mike Tomlin said.

What It Means:

It looked like Green was on track to return last week after getting in two full practices, but Tomlin wound up holding him out Friday after stating the team didn't get the results they hoped for from a post-practice test. We don't plan on knowing about Green's status until Friday at the earliest, but it's possible he gets cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Green's Reception Net Expected Points per target ranked fifth among the 43 tight ends to receive at least 30 targets this year.
