Jason Pierre-Paul, Aaron Ross Injury Updates: Giants Defenders Collide, Able To Walk Off But Status Unknown

On a second and long passing situation, Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan dropped back to throw and delivered a pass that was deflected by one of the New York Giants defensive lineman. As the ball floated aimlessly in the air, several Giants converged on the ball. Two of them were Jason Pierre-Paul and Aaron Ross, and both stayed on the ground for a few minutes. Per Albert Breer, both seemed to walk off dazed but okay.

Aaron Ross has been taken to the locker room with a possible head injury. If anything else is reported, we will have an update so stay tuned.
