New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett said Sunday that he did not have a concussion after a hit to the head in the head in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's win over the Green Bay Packers. Bennett was hit on a third-down pass at the goal line by rookie safety Jerron McMillian, a play that drew a flag for unnecessary roughness.
Bennett said after the game (via The Newark Star-Ledger) that he was given a concussion test, which he said he "passed like Doogie Howser." Bennett finished with 44 yards and three catches. He did not return to the game after the hit by McMillian.
Fantasy Impact: Bennett has still not scored a touchdown since Week 3 but continues to get targets from Eli Manning. Bennett has good matchups against Washington and New Orleans in the next two weeks and could help out some fantasy owners needing a win to make the playoffs.
Bennett is a fringe No. 1 fantasy tight end in most weeks.
