Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden has a concussion, reports Josh Alper’s ProFootballTalk. Barden, who had been filling in for the injured Hakeem Nicks, took a blow to the head during one of the final plays of the team’s 19-17 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

“He complained of a headache and asked if he could be evaluated,” Coughlin said, via the team. “They sent him for the evaluation yesterday. I think a lot of the symptoms were okay, but there was enough there to slow him down. He is on the (concussion) protocol.”

Barden has 12 receptions for 198 yards on the season and is questionable for this Sunday’s game game against the Browns.
