Ladarius Green TE SD 20 Hrs
Green (hamstring) did not have a reception in Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Green was active, but he was simply not needed in this game as the Bolts had Antonio Gates and all three of their top wide receivers very involved in the passing game. Green will likely rest his hamstring more this week with the hopes of getting back on the scoring sheet in Week 5 against the Jets.

Green (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
After missing practice Friday and heading into Sunday's game listed as questionable, it's unclear how close to 100 percent Green will be on Sunday. With Antonio Gates also in the team's TE mix, Green looks like a hit-or-miss option this weekend.

Green (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, the Chargers' official site reports.
After being limited at practice Thursday, Green did not work on Friday, so he's looking iffy as Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff approaches. In the event that Green misses the contest, fellow TE Antonio Gates' chances of rebounding from a quiet Week 3 would increase.

Green was added to the Chargers' injury report Thursday, the team's official site reports. The tight end was listed as limited by a hamstring injury.
Green, who caught four passes on six targets for 64 yards in Week 3, has six catches on seven targets overall in three games to date, with fellow TE Antonio Gates currently leading the Chargers with 14 catches for 185 yards and three TDs in that span.

Green had four catches on six targets for 64 yards Sunday against the Bills.
Green has struggled this season as Antonio Gates has performed very well (including a three-touchdown performance in Week 2), though the tables turned Sunday, as Gates caught only one pass for eight yards. Up next is an encouraging matchup against the Jaguars in Week 4.

Green caught both of the two passes which were thrown his way for two yards in Monday night's loss at Arizona.
Green is sure to have some good games this season as the Bolts plan to use him more, but Antonio Gates is clearly still the top dog according to his team-leading 10 targets. Green is a high risk play in any given week, but if the game looks to be low-scoring or tight, as this one was, expect the Chargers to lean first and foremost on Gates.

Green caught one pass for five yards on three targets in Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers.
The reception and two of the targets came in the second half, but Green has seen plenty of work with the first-team offense this preseason. Though Green was outperformed by Antonio Gates on Sunday, there should be room for both to succeed in the San Diego offense. Gates is still locked in as a near every-down player at tight end, while Green figures to see playing time in a variety of roles.

Philip Rivers was on the other end of both receptions, as Green was a big part of the first-team offense. Yes, Antonio Gates is still around, but Green is capable of lining up all over the formation, and the Chargers lack talent at wide receiver behind Keenan Allen.

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Kevin Acee expects Ladarius Green to "at least double" his 2013 receiving line of 17-367-3.
We might consider it a disappointment if Green only doubled last year's stats. Acee confirms "there are plays Green makes ... no one else on the roster can make." Ideally, Green would emerge as the Chargers' No. 2 passing-game option, behind Keenan Allen, and become a jump-ball dominator in the red zone.

Ladarius Green is working as the Chargers' No. 1 tight end during minicamp while Antonio Gates attends to a "very personal" matter."
Gates won't be phased out of the offense, but it's a good opportunity for Green to build chemistry with Philip Rivers, and impress a coaching staff that's yet to commit to Green as a featured component of its passing attack. Green reportedly "punctuated" a two-minute drill in Tuesday's practice with a 15-yard TD catch. 24-year-old Green offers a high level of 2014 breakout appeal.
