San Diego Chargers tight end Ladarius Green was limited in practice on Wednesday as he recovers from a second concussion suffered in the last two weeks.

Green suffered a concussion in practice prior to the team’s regular season opener against the Detroit Lions and head coach Mike McCoy said he was being treated for concussion-like symptoms following the team’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

Like any player on our football team, we’re going to be cautious with that,” McCoy said, via Eric D. Williams of “He’ll go through the normal protocol, and he’ll go through the evaluations the rest of the week. And we’ll go from there. He’ll have an NFL neurologist look at him like every other NFL player would at this point in time come later in the week.”

Despite the concussions, Green has managed to play in both of the Chargers first two games. He’s caught 10 passes for 121 yards and a touchdown while starting in place of Antonio Gates, who is suspended for the first four games.

Green being able to practice on Wednesday is a good sign that he’ll be cleared once again to play this week against the Minnesota Vikings.
