Chargers TE Green questionable; Lions o-line dinged up


The Sports Xchange

The San Diego Chargers listed tight end Ladarius Green as questionable to face the Detroit Lions on Sunday as he continues to work through the league’s concussion protocol.

Green practiced in full Friday for the first time this week. With Antonio Gates suspended and Green’s status uncertain, third-string tight end David Johnson could be in line for significant snaps Sunday.

The Chargers ruled guard Johnnie Troutman (forearm) and outside linebacker Tourek Williams (foot) as out. Outside linebacker Jerry Attaochu (hamstring) and cornerback Craig Mager (hamstring) are questionable.

The Lions will be without defensive tackle Caraun Reid and guard Larry Warford due to ankle injuries. Linebacker DeAndre Levy is questionable with a hip issue and offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle is questionable.

The injuries to Warford and Waddle could lead to the Lions scrambling on the right side of their offensive line. Taylor Boggs is listed as Warford’s primary backup and Cornelius Lucas could be in line to replace Waddle.

Tight end Eric Ebron (ankle) and linebacker Tahir Whitehead (elbow) are probable.
