Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson, who dished out the most devastating hit in a day full of them, suffered a concussion on the play that also knocked out Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
Falcons coach Mike Smith broke the news Monday at his press conference, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Jackson suffered a “severe concussion” that is expected to keep him out this week before Philly’s bye. Even normally tight-lipped Eagles coach Andy Reid admitted it would be a “real stretch” for Jackson to play this week.
The NFL said Monday they will consider suspensions for helmet-to-helmet hits. Robinson’s case might be the toughest to legislate because of where he initially made contact with Jackson on the hit.
It appears Robinson may have knocked himself out for a game either way.
