  • Ramses Barden Unlikely to Play vs. Browns.....Concussion.....

    According to the report, it is unclear when Barden suffered the concussion. Though he grabbed just two receptions for 36 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles, the 26-year-old receiver was on the field for 43 of the Giants' 68 snaps and was never seen leaving the field with an injury.....

    How the heck did that happen?

    Maybe someone can clarify, but isn't a ruled concussion automatically mean a player is sitting for a game? I've been assuming that he was out this week regardless.

    Hopefully someone knows the answer to this, injury rules and 'unwritten' injury rules are tough to keep up with these days.

        Absolutely not. He must pass the concussion tests later this week and if he does he will be likely cleared to play. Bleacher Report is garbage ignore them.

          At 6'6", probably walked into an overhead fan.

            My understanding is they have to pass an "independent" medical examination before they can practice. Josh Cribbs was knocked out last Thursday and he's practicing today.

              Maybe it happened late in the game, on the second PI call by the Eagles? Looked like he took a shot to the head from a defender and had a rough landing.

              ...or maybe it happened after the game via voodoo from Nnamdi as payback for poking his eye.

                I cant believe our WR corps are now being decimated. Maybe we can bring in Douglas off the PS now and see what he has. It has to be more then what JJ brings us.
                WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

                  Randle is the next man up, then Jernigan

                    I do not want to see butterfinger JJ any where near the ball except if he starts playing defense. I don't see what he brings to the table.
                    Lets go, Giants!

                      Yeah, but Jernigan will be on the field now at times as the 4th WR with Nicks and Barden out.

                            Thanks Roanoke, that's exactly what I was thinking of but couldn't remember.

                            IIRC - There was a lot of scrutiny about team Dr's clearing players before they should have so the league wound up ordering independent evaluations in addition.
                            Thanks again
