Kubiak won't scale back game plan for Osweiler vs Bears

News: Green was targeted once in Sunday's win over Chicago, recording a nine-yard reception.
Impact: Following a three-catch performance in Week 8, Green has been targeted just once in each of the past three contests. In Brock Osweiler's first game under center, head coach Gary Kubiak implemented his multi-tight-end scheme to full effect, with 12 of 27 passes directed at tight ends. Eleven of those targets, however, went to Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis. Green saw the field just 26 times as compared to Daniels, 59, and Davis, 50, and is unlikely to benefit much from Denver's adjusted offense.

News: Green caught three passes on three targets for 61 total yards in Sunday's win over the Packers.
Impact: Long stuck in an H-back role in which he's been primarily tasked with blocking, Green set a career high in receiving yards Sunday and his three receptions tied a career mark. Green looked comfortable as a pass catcher, splitting the defense on a 32-yard crosser and running through arm tackles to pick up extra yardage. It will be interesting to see where he lines up in the weeks ahead following Denver's trade for Vernon Davis. Though Gary Kubiak is known for using multiple-tight-end sets, it is very possible that the move will slide Green back into the backfield in more of a blocking role.

News: Green failed to catch his only target Sunday against the Ravens.
Impact: Despite being listed as the starting tight end, Green is much more of a blocker than a pass-catcher, and with the offensive line struggling Sunday by allowing four sacks, Green had few opportunities for route running.
