Saints CB PJ Williams carted off field with concussion
Sunday September 18th, 2016

Saints cornerback P.J. Williams was carted off the field after briefly losing consciousness during Sunday’s game against the Giants. 

Williams was injured while making a tackle on Giants tight end Larry Donnell. Donnell’s knee and Saints linebacker Craig Robertson’s knee hit Williams in the head. He laid motionless on the ground for several minutes while a backboard was brought out to carry him off the field.

Williams was taken by ambulance to a hospital and diagnosed with a concussion. According to Fox’s Laura Okmin, Williams had movement in his fingers and toes, and was being evaluated at the hospital for a spinal injury. 

Williams was a third-round pick out of Florida State last year but did not make his NFL debut until this season.
