There was a terrible injury in Giants play on Sunday as a successor in New York CJ board he came down with a neck injury, which forced him to be immobilized and taken off the field. Fortunately, the worst case scenario seems to have been avoided. The team said Bord was diagnosed with a sprained neck and concussion after being taken to a local hospital. Coach of the Giants Joe Judge said after the game that the initial feedback he received from the doctors was “quite positive”
He also said the Board was responsive and had movements in its limbs. UDFA from 2017, Board is in its first season with Giants. The Chattanooga product has seven catches for 66 yards a year. Here is to hope that he recovers quickly and completely.
Now for more of the struggling NFC East:
- The Giants does not start a rookie from the first round Andrew Thomas left to left on Sunday, but it wasn’t because of his performance, although he didn’t play as well as the other fights in the first round. Thomas was disciplined for breaking the team’s rules, the referee said after the match. The judge wouldn’t go into too much detail, but he didn’t make it sound too serious. Thomas came into the game in the second quarter, and while that doesn’t seem like a big deal, it’s also not a great sign for the development of the fourth overall selection.
- The giants will play on Eagles on Thursday night of football this week and Philly is finally starting to get healthier. DeSean Jackson is expected to return from a lower leg injury for this week 7 game, a source told ESPN.com’s Adam Shefter (link to Twitter). Jackson has missed the last three games as the Eagles’ foul was besieged by injuries. In particular, Philly’s group of pass hunters has been defeated and Jackson will return the much-needed vertical threat to the passing attack. In two and a half games, he had ten catches for 121 yards before coming down.
