Giants WR Board carted off field after injury

New York Giants wide receiver C.J. Board was carted off the field after a scary play in which he landed on his head and neck after attempting to make a catch in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Washington Football Team.

Board, 26, was surrounded by medical personnel as he lay motionless on the field. His facemask was removed and his neck was immobilized before he was lifted from a stretcher onto a cart.

The second-year wideout from Tennessee-Chattanooga has played in all six games with the New York Giants this season after appearing in four games last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He had one catch for eight yards on Sunday, and has nine catches for 97 yards in his career.

New York led Washington 13-10 when Board was injured.
