Rhett Ellison latest Giants player to enter concussion protocol

New, comments

Ellison joins Nate Solder, Sterling Shepard and Janoris Jenkins

NFL: New York Giants at New York Jets Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The hits, specifically the concussions, just continue to mount for the New York Giants.

Left tackle Nate Solder and cornerback Janoris Jenkins left Sunday’s loss to the New York Jets with concussions. On Monday, the team announced that tight end Rhett Ellison is also in the league’s concussion protocol.

With Evan Engram missing Sunday’s game with a foot injury Ellison and rookie Kaden Smith were the only remaining tight ends on the roster. Ellison caught three passes for 42 yards while playing 35 snaps.

Wide receiver Sterling Shepard, who has had two concussions this season, also remains in the concussion protocol. He has not played since Week 5.

The Giants are currently on their bye week. They return to action Nov. 24 against the Chicago Bears.

With the recent injury news and the fact that the Giants are 2-8 you have to believe there will be some roster moves made prior to the game in Chicago.
