Mike Tomlin says TE Ladarius Green suffered a ‘setback’ in protocol
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin revealed some bad news regarding tight end Ladarius Green.
Tomlin announced Green suffered a “setback,” per the Observer-Reporter’s Dale Lolley. It’s uncertain what type of setback Green endured, but he’s been in concussion protocol for the past two weeks and missed Pittsburgh’s wild card win over the Miami Dolphins.
Green has been banged up for most of the season and missed 10 games during his first season with the team. He caught only 18 passes for 304 yards and 1 touchdown.
There’s no official word on Green’s status for Sunday’s divisional round game against the Kansas City Chiefs. But the tight end’s chances of playing seem slim, at best.
