BOSTON -- Rookie receiver Demario Douglas missed Wednesday's Patriots practice due to a concussion.

Douglas was hit with a forearm to the facemask and neck area while returning a punt on Sunday against the Giants, sending him out of the game with a head injury. Head coach Bill Belichick said Monday morning that he wasn't quite sure if the injury was a concussion, but Douglas was listed on the injury report on Wednesday with a concussion.

It's the rookie's second concussion this year, as he missed the Patriots' game in Las Vegas earlier this season. His status for Sunday's game vs. the Chargers should be considered very much in question.

Ty Montgomery was the only player other than Douglas to miss practice, as he deals with an illness.

For the Chargers, wide receiver Keenan Allen was a non-participant due to a quadriceps injury. Tight end Nick Vannett (concussion) and linebacker Khalil Mack (not injury-related) were the other non-participants for Los Angeles.

The Patriots listed 10 players as limited participants, while the Chargers listed four. The full injury report is below.
