New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker isn’t happy with how the NFL handled his head injury in Monday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Parker was injured in the first quarter in New England’s Week 14 road game at State Farm Stadium. It was actually Parker’s teammate, fellow wide receiver Nelson Agholor, who alerted officials to stop play after Parker took a hit to the head.
The veteran wideout took to Instagram and ripped the NFL on his story, telling the league to get on their “(expletive) jobs.” You can see a screenshot of Parker’s story below (WARNING: Contains language that is NSFW):

On Tuesday afternoon, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the NFLPA and the league “are reviewing the circumstances surrounding the sequence of events” over Parker’s injury.
The 29-year-old Parker had two receptions for 24 yards against Arizona before having to leave the game. New England’s defense took over in the second half and led the visitors to a much-needed 27-13 victory to improve to 7-6 on the year.
There were several injuries that took place during the Cardinals-Patriots Monday night game. Arizona’s star quarterback, Kyler Murray, sadly suffered a season-ending ACL tear early in the first quarter on a non-contact play.
Aside from Parker, New England also lost starting running back Rhamondre Stevenson left the game in the first quarter with an ankle injury and did not return. Standout rookie cornerback Jack Jones also left the game and didn’t return after suffering a bone bruise, but he informed NESN that he shouldn’t miss any action.
In April, the Patriots acquired Parker and a 2022 fifth-round pick from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a 2023 third-round selection. In 12 games, Parker has 25 receptions for 460 yards and one touchdown.
The Patriots will try to improve to 8-6 on the year when they visit old friend Josh McDaniels and the Las Vegas Raiders this Sunday.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
