Falcons reserve offensive tackle Terren Jones suffered a concussion and is the league’s concussion protocol program and defensive tackle Ra’Shede Hageman suffered an undisclosed hand injury, Falcons coach Mike Smith said on Monday.
Jones was taken off the field on a stretcher to an awaiting ambulance on Sunday. He was apparently kicked in the head while on the ground. Hageman was hurt in a scuffle with center Joe Hawley.
“He was taken off the field, but he was returned to the facility early evening and is resting today,” Smith said. “I thought that our medical people did a wonderful job in terms of the situation yesterday with getting him off the field and to the Northeast Georgia Medical Center. He returned within a couple of hours and was back in here last night.”
Hageman told others he suffered a hairline wrist fracture before getting an x-ray. The x-ray revealed that he didn’t have a fracture, but a bone bruise.
