Steelers place Ladarius Green on PUP list

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers' free agent signing of the offseason won't suit up for the team before Week 7.

Green will be unable to play through week six as a result of the roster move.

The Steelers announced Tuesday they have placed the talented tight end on the physically unable to perform list to start the season.

The former Ragin' Cajun suffered several concussions during his four years in San Diego. He had told reporters in the offseason that he expected to be ready for camp.

There's still no official information regarding the cause of Green's ailments, but this was the expectation after a summer filled with reports of headaches and an ankle issue.

This move isn't surprising, considering Green hasn't practiced all preseason since undergoing ankle surgery, but it amplifies the complications with signing Green to a four-year, $20 million contract in March.

Green isn't worth stashing in redraft leagues, and Jesse James is worth a late-round flier as the starting tight end in Pittsburgh. He's yet to practice with his new team.
