The post of Jabril Cox sparks backlash
Cowboys defender Jabril Cox has come under fire on social media after he re-shared a clip of the collision with the Giants star on his Instagram profile.
The linebacker re-posted a Story, which has since been taken down, from another user which said “giving out concussions!!!” followed by an emoji with head bandages.
Videos of the collision are all over on social media but Giants fans were disappointed that Jabril chose to re-share a post with that particular caption above.
“I mean you just don’t have to repost someone that said you’re giving on concussions like it was a good thing. Maybe just skip over that one. Seems pretty straightforward,” wrote one fan.
Meanwhile, someone else defended Jabril and tweeted: “Giants fan bro it’s his first game in the line-up and he made a big play he didn’t say that someone else did he just reposted it Jones gave himself that concussion.”
“Yea it was wrong that’s why he took it down within 5 minutes,” they added.
Will Daniel return to this week’s game?
The Giants star has entered concussion protocol after the injury and continues getting tested and taking rest this week.
It hasn’t been confirmed whether Daniel will take part in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams at MetLife Stadium.
Speaking to reporters on Sunday, October 10th, head Joe Judge refused to get into a “medical diagnosis” about the Giants star.
