Not great news coming out of the Giants camp this week. It seems that Jeremy Shockey got a concussion in a collision with Will Demps and is still feeling the effects two days later.
We don’t need this. Shockey’s got the goods, even if he’s got a mouth to go along with them. A lot of the buzz is about Manning coming into his own just when he’s got all his weapons available, and Shockey is one of the big ones. If he can’t go, that puts that much more pressure on the outside receivers and Manning to get it to them.
But, he says he’s in good shape and should be back at practice in a couple of days. Concussions have ended far too many careers. Let’s hope this isn’t another.
