Dan Connor to have MRI Monday
Connor suffered a stinger on a second-quarter run by Ahmad Bradshaw and did not return. He was replaced in the base defense by Orie Lemon. He suffered a slight stinger last week at Carolina and it appeared to trouble him early in the week during practice.
Asked if he had a history of stingers, Connor said, “Not to this degree, no. This was one of the worst ones.”
Connor started in place of Sean Lee, whose season ended last week because of a toe injury. Lee will have surgery Tuesday and will be ready for the offseason conditioning program. Connor is hopeful he can play next week at Atlanta.
“It’s unbelievably frustrating,” said Connor, who was credited with two tackles before getting hurt. “I felt good out there. I thought we were doing a great job and the defense continued to do a great job through the rest of the game and really kept us in it.”
