New York Giants wide receiver C.J. Board was carted off the field during the third quarter of Sunday’s game against Washington with a possible head or neck injury.
The team later announced that Board was alert and initially diagnosed with a concussion and a neck sprain, and was being taken to a hospital for evaluation.
And, after the game ended, head coach Joe Judge said that the initial report on Board's condition was "pretty positive."
"The one thing I can say, good-news-wise, is that even on the field, he was moving, he was conscious, he was responding," Judge said. "He had movement in all his extremities. They obviously had to have some precautions with what they were doing."
Board was the target on a first-down play early in the third quarter, but was awkwardly hit by Washington safety Deshazor Everett and twisted around before hitting the ground. He laid motionless for a few minutes as trainers checked on him, before being carted off the field with his face mask taken off and his head and arms being supported by staff.
Board had one catch for eight yards on the day, and had six catches for 58 yards this season coming into the game.
This is a developing story.
