Sunderland was dealt quite the scare after Billy Jones was momentarily unresponsive after suffering a concussion on Saturday.
The right-back had to be taken off on a stretcher with his neck braced after a bad fall, which led to 10 minutes of extra time where Fabio Borini was able to strike the equalizer. "At first, from the dugout, we thought it might be his shoulder, but it was his head and it was concussion," said manager David Moyes. "I think he passed out briefly so he’s gone to hospital to be checked out. He was a bit dazed, and when they asked him a few questions he didn’t answer them quite right, they tell me. But we think he is OK." Jones has since been release from the hospital and is expected to be available for the club's next match, which comes in 10 days to put him clear of the FA's six-day concussion protocol.
