Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden has a concussion, reports Josh Alper's ProFootballTalk. Barden, who had been filling in for the injured Hakeem Nicks, took a blow to the head during one of the final plays of the team's 19-17 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

"He complained of a headache and asked if he could be evaluated,” Coughlin said, via the team. “They sent him for the evaluation yesterday. I think a lot of the symptoms were okay, but there was enough there to slow him down. He is on the (concussion) protocol.”
