Ladarius Green Returns to Practice

Tight end Ladarius Green returned to practice today in a limited capacity for the first time since being concussed in the Dec. 18 game in Cincinnati. Green remains in the NFL concussion protocol and declined an interview request Wednesday, but if he practices again Thursday and Friday it would be a good sign that he might be available for first playoff game Jan. 7 or 8.

Green has had concussions previously when he played in San Diego and headaches forced him to start this season on the physically unable to perform list.

Receiver Sammie Coates also returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday. He missed the Baltimore Ravens game with a hamstring injury. Tight end Xavier Grimble, who injured his ribs against the Ravens, also was limited.

Roethlisberger and seven others did not practice Wednesday. The others were linebacker Anthony Chickillo (ankle), offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert (not injury related), safety Robert Golden (ankle), defensive end Ricardo Mathews (ankle), safety Mike Mitchell (not injury related), linebacker Ryan Shazier (illness) and defensive end Stephon Tuitt (knee).
