Oniel Cousins is still feeling the effects of a concussion that he suffered a week ago in practice, but the offensive tackle says that he's slowly starting to improve and the symptoms are dissipating.
"They're going away slowly," Cousins said. "I still got a little bit. I'm improving every day, which is a good thing."
While it appears unlikely that Cousins will play this Saturday against the Giants, the third-year tackle said he hopes to suit up if he's healthy.
"I was trying to," Cousins said. "That's my mentality. If not, I'm going to take it day by day. If not, I'll be ready for the next game."
Cousins has been wearing sunglasses indoors and will continue to take precautionary measures to prevent the symptoms that he's been battling for the last handful of days.
"You get headaches and you lose your memory for a while," Cousins said. "You get migraines. It's hard to focus in and it's hard to talk with the bright lights and the camera and everything. I'm improving and feeling better and better every day. Hopefully, I'll be able to go Saturday.
"A concussion is something I can't control. It's part of the game. I'm going to continue to do my best to get my brain healthy so I can go back out there."
