Bills Cornerback Suffers Concussion In Monday Night Game

He was removed from the game in the first quarter.

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said on WGR550 that cornerback Taron Johnson remains in concussion protocol.

Johnson went down on the first series of the game before he was taken to the medical tent on the Bills' sideline. He was then removed from the game, as he went to the locker room to undergo further evaluation on his head injury.

In his absence, Siran Neal has taken over as the team's nickel cornerback.

In 15 games this season, the twenty-six-year-old Johnson has 82 total tackles, one fumble recovery, one interception and eight passes defended.

The fact that he has not cleared concussion protocol by now all but rules him out for this week's game against the New England Patriots.
