Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins played entire half vs. Dallas with concussion

Thursday November 12th, 2015

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins played the entire second half of Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys with a concussion, he told reporters on Thursday.

“I kind of had an idea, but my symptoms went away,” Jenkins told NJ.com. “So I kind of kept it to myself.”

Jenkins played 79 snaps, a team high, in the 33–27 overtime victory.

He did not participate in practice on Tuesday or Wednesday as he underwent the NFL's concussion protocol. He returned to practice on Thursday.

“Looking back on it, I shouldn’t have done (it),” Jenkins later added. “I know the coaching staff and the medical staff wasn’t too happy afterwards. It was ill-advised.”

The Eagles will play the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
