Wide receiver Kevin Ogletree and safety Charlie Peprah have an uphill battle in front of them, in terms of getting on the field in Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Redskins.
It was revealed this week that both Ogletree and Peprah had suffered concussions in Sunday’s 23-20 overtime victory over the Browns. Per the NFL’s new legislation concerning concussions, they’ll have a battery of tests to pass before they are cleared to return--and of course, that’ll be tough to do with just three days between games.
As Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports, neither player participated in the team’s practice session on Monday. But Peprah, at least, was pretty optimistic 24 hours after sustaining the first concussion of his young NFL career.
“I feel good,” Peprah said. “I feel fine. I don’t think it was that bad, but I don’t know how protocols go. This is my first one in the league, so I don’t know how precautions they’re going to be. We’ll take it day by day.”
