Is Larry Donnell’s neck injury career ending?
Giants tight end Larry Donnell suffered a neck injury in back in week 8, sidelining him for the remainder of the season. Today there are serious concerns that Donnell will not be cleared to return to the field.
While addressing the Media an the NFL Scouting Combine, Giants G.M. Jerry Reese stated.
“Hopefully he’ll be able to continue to play,’’ Reese said. “We’re expecting him to be back, but necks can be tricky. We’ll have to wait and see where that goes.”
The New York Posts Paul Schwartz fears that Donnell may be forced into an early retirement.
The Giants know all too well how an innocuous neck injury can devolve into so much more — for example, the premature retirements of linebacker Antonio Pierce and running back David Wilson. There is concern that tight end Larry Donnell could be facing a similar fate.
Donnell, 27, was having a strong 2015 season, finishing with 63 receptions for 623 yards and 6 touchdowns before the injury ended his season.
Hopefully fan favorite Donnell could heal up and return to the G-men, because he would certainly be missed.
