One of the scariest moments of Sunday’s NFL action came in the Saints-Giants game, when New Orleans cornerback P.J. Williams was knocked unconscious on the field. But it appears to be an incident that will have an OK ending.

Williams has a concussion but is expected to be “fine,” a source told Mike Triplett of ESPN.

In a freakish occurrence, Williams was kneed in the head twice while tackling Giants tight end Larry Donnell. He appeared to be unconscious on the field, and players on both teams were visibly concerned. Medical personnel attended to him for several minutes before he was taken to a hospital.

It is unclear how much time Williams will miss, but it is very good news that less than 24 hours later, it appears that his return to the field is a matter of “when,” not “if.”

    Expected to be “fine”…. hmm. That has a “rub some dirt on it” vibe to it. He was concussed into unconsciousness. When I got a severe concussion I wasn’t “fine” for YEARS. My neurologist said that it was critical to my present and future health to avoid any further head trauma, again, for a period of years. Further, I was told that a badly concussed brain is very prone to re-injury and generally it takes a whole lot less to do so.

    I wouldn’t call the outlook for him “fine”. In a rational world, his career is essentially over. Far too dangerous for him to continue to play. In THIS world the money he can make clouds the issue to say the least, so, he’ll be back ASAP. that’s not “being fine”; it’s something else entirely.
