Recurring concussion symptoms end Randall Gay's season
The New Orleans Saints have ended the season for cornerback Randall Gay, who is suffering from recurring symptoms from a concussion.
Gay originally suffered the head injury in Week 2. He returned to action in Weeks 4 and 5 and was held out of last Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay. Gay consulted physicians who work for the team as well as independent doctors before a decision was reached to place him on injured reserve.
"We spent a lot of time on this decision," Saints coach Sean Payton said, according to James Varney of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "It's disappointing it happened this early in the season."
Payton does not believe this is a potentially career-ending injury for Gay, a seven-year veteran. But with concussions, you just never know.
