Chargers head coach Mike McCoy told reporters that Green was treated for concussion-like symptoms on Tuesday from a head injury he suffered during last weekend’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
“Like any player on our football team, we’re going to be cautious with that,” McCoy said. “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.”
Green also suffered a concussion in a Wednesday practice leading up to San Diego’s season opener against the Detroit Lions on Sept. 13.
Green was cleared to play in that contest, and through two games has filled in nicely for starting tight end Antonio Gates, who’s out the first four games of the regular season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Green is third on the team in receptions with 10, going for 121 yards and a touchdown.
Three of San Diego’s projected starting offensive linemen at the beginning of the season also did not practice on Wednesday.
Guard D.J. Fluker is still recovering from a high-ankle sprain, but did some individual work on the field with trainer James Collins at the beginning of practice. Fluker missed last week’s game against the Bengals.
