Saints' P.J. Williams recovering from concussion; to return to N.O.
NEW ORLEANS – New Orleans Saints cornerback P.J. Williams will be returning to New Orleans Monday afternoon after suffering a concussion during Sunday's game against the New York Giants.
Williams was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation and was diagnosed with a concussion. Head coach Sean Payton said that Willaims stayed at the hospital overnight and will return home.
"All the news is positive, which is real encouraging," Payton said.
Williams will have to go through the NFL's concussion protocol before he can resume practicing and playing. Williams suffered two hits to the head, first from the leg of Giants tight end Larry Donnell and the second from Saints teammate Craig Robertson.
Williams was down for down for several minutes following the hits before he was immobilized and carted off the field. He was serving as the Saints cornerback in Sunday's 16-13 loss while cornerback Delvin Breaux broke his fibula in last weekend's game.
