Video: Saints WR Brandin Cooks knocked out cold after slamming head on turf


Late in Sunday’s Week 17 matchup between the New Orleans and Atlanta, Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks was knocked out cold after falling and slamming his head against the turf.

Cooks went up for a catch over Falcons defensive back Brian Poole, before taking a hard fall.

Here is video of the play, via The Big Lead:

The good news is that Cooks was able to regain his consciousness and leave the field under his own power. He was immediately ruled out for the remainder of the game.

We wish Cooks a full and speedy recovery.

Atlanta went on to win the game, 38-32.
