Ellis Hobbs Has Full Use of Extremities After Being Carted Off Field
The Eagles later said X-rays were negative and that Hobbs walked out of the X-ray room wearing a neck brace.
The Giants' Dave Tollefson delivered what looked to be a helmet-to-helmet hit on Hobbs as he fielded the kick and began to take it upfield. Hobbs fumbled the ball (the Eagles recovered) and fell to the ground, where he lay for several minutes as team medical personnel attended to him and awaited a stretcher.
The six-year pro flashed two thumbs' up as he left on the stretcher.
There was no flag thrown for Tollefson's hit. There was a penalty called against the Eagles on the play for an illegal wedge block.
The Eagles said Hobbs was undergoing further examination in the locker room and would not return to the game.
