Green caught one of his two targets for 15 yards in the 24-17 loss Sunday to the Steelers.
The return of Hunter Henry (knee) essentially relegated Green to a reserve blocker, as the veteran tight end played just 37 percent of his team's snaps compared to 77 percent the week before. Even as the No. 1 option at tight end, Green was hardly a fantasy focal point, and with Henry back, he should not be relied upon in any capacity.
Green (groin) caught his only target for five yards in the 20-13 loss Sunday to the Broncos.
Green was the only tight end to catch a pass Sunday, but this was hardly a revenge game for the long-time Broncos player. Considering the veteran has only ran routes on 70 percent of his snaps to date, it's clear the 31-year-old is little more than a blocking specialist in an offense that tends to only feature four players any given game.
Green (groin) is active for Sunday's game versus the Broncos.
Green will return after a one-game absence, and he'll slot in as the starting tight end. His offensive upside -- three targets in three games -- has been disappointing despite Hunter Henry's (knee) absence, and Lance Kendricks, who was targeted three times Week 4, could cut into his chances.
Green (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Broncos.
Green has been able to practice in some capacity all week, including full participation Friday, so it seems as if the veteran's game-time status is trending in the right direction. The 31-year-old has seen just three targets across 113 offensive snaps through three games, but considering injuries to Hunter Henry (knee) and Sean Culkin (Achilles) leave the unproven Stephen Anderson and veteran castoff Lance Kendricks behind Green on the depth chart, it's possible he could see a bit more action in the passing game if active Sunday.
Green (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
It wasn't revealed what capacity Green participated in, but practicing in any fashion gives him a decent shot to play Sunday versus the Broncos. If he suits up, Green should play plenty of snaps since the Chargers just sent Sean Culkin to injured reserve with a torn Achilles. However, his fantasy value isn't appealing with just two catches for 13 yards through three games.
