There is a scary damage to Giants game Sunday, as New York recipient CJ Board dropped with a neck injury requested that he be immobilized and transferred out of the field. Unfortunately, it looks like the worst scenario to have avoided. The team announced that the Board was diagnosed with a brain neck and concussion after being taken to a local hospital. Giants coach Joe Judge said after the game that the initial feedback he got from the doctors was “pretty positive.”;
He also said the Board is responsive and has movement in its extremities. A 2017 UDFA, the Board is in its first season with Giants. The Chattanooga product has seven catches in 66 yards a year. Here is the hope that he can make a quick and full recovery.
Now for more from the struggling NFC East:
- Ang Giants did not start the first-round rookie Andrew Thomas in the left tackle on Sunday, but not because of his performance even though he has not played as well as other first-round tackles. Thomas was benched for disciplinary reasons after violating a team’s rules, Judge said after the game. The judge will not discuss many details, but he does not take them seriously. Thomas entered the game in the second quarter and although it didn’t seem like a big deal, it was also not a good sign for the fourth overall pick pick.
- The Giants will play Eagles on Thursday Night Football this week, and Philly is finally starting to get healthy. DeSean Jackson expected to return from his hamstring injury for week 7 games, a source told ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter (Twitter link). Jackson missed the last three games because the Eagles’ offense was besieged by injuries. Philly’s particular pass-catcher team was knocked down, and Jackson would return a necessary vertical threat to the underlying attack. Through two and a half games he had ten catches within 121 yards before coming down.
