Ladarius Green has been a part of the Pittsburgh Steelers since he signed a four-year contract with the team worth $20 million back in March earlier this year.
Yet, the tight end has yet to make his debut with the AFC North franchise due to his offseason ankle surgery to repair a damaged tendon. Since then, he's been on the physically unable to perform list (PUP).
This Sunday however, all that could change, according to a report by ESPN.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN tweeted on Saturday that the former San Diego Charger will finally make his first appearance for the Steelers when they play against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
He also noted that it will be up to Pittsburgh's head coach Mike Tomlin whether or not the tight end is activated off the PUP, so there is still a chance he might not play until next week.
Green will most likely be on a snap count if he is activated this week because it is his first game of the season, so don't expect a big game from him.
For an offense that is in the need for playmakers outside of wide receiver Antonio Brown and running back Le'Veon Bell, the team will be hoping the tight end is able to get up to speed quickly so that the team as a whole can benefit and make a run for the playoffs.
If the 26-year-old is active for Pittsburgh's game against Dallas, it will be the first time he has played a game in the NFL since week 16 of the 2015 season for the Chargers against the Oakland Raiders.
