WR Jaylen Waddle is currently in concussion protocol as a result of the hit he took late in the game. Like Ahmed, more information should be known later this week.
LB Jaelan Phillips and OT Terron Armstead both were on the inactive list for last night’s game. The coach said both Phillips and Armstead thought they could play. But, the team decided to take the long term care route for both players. He said they are trending in the right direction to play in week 3. But, did not go as far as saying they will play.
