Giants testing ex-Cat John Conner for concussion

August 10, 2014 

New York Giants Coach Tom Coughlin reported that the lone injury to come out of Saturday night's game was a possible concussion to fullback John Conner.

The former New York Jets draft pick, who joined the Giants' roster late last year, was hit in the second quarter and came off the field.

"We're going to take the proper protocol," Coughlin said about the NFL's strict policy on head injuries. "He seemed fine and his eyes were bright, but he will go through the proper protocol. It's all about safety first, then we'll see where he's at and whether he can practice or play."

A further determination about the former University of Kentucky standout's condition will be done Monday.
