But, now, several hours later, the news in regard to Perriman is good. Golden Knights head coach George O’Leary said that Perriman has just a concussion.

Perriman left with 12:47 left in the fourth quarter, as he attempted to catch a pass from quarterback Blake Bortles. The sophomore wide receiver would be down on the field for nearly 15 minutes, as medical personnel worked on him with his father near by.

“It wasn’t helmet-to-helmet, he left his feet, and to me I always teach you’ve got to keep an eye on the ball,” O’Leary said. “If you’ve got an eye on the ball you’re not going to get hit with that stuff. He left his feet and launched in the air. I thought it was a good call to me.”

Perriman’s father looked on just inches away, as the medical personnel were working on his son. Perriman’s father is former NFL receiver Brett Perriman.

On the same drive, the Golden Knights would just need five more plays to score, as William Stanback scored on a 38-yard touchdown. They would go up 19-7 with 10:23 left, and hold on to win 19-14, as they now have sole possession of the American Athletic Conference.

“That’s a brother that was down on the field,” Bortles said. “That’s probably on me throwing the ball and kind of setting him up. I’ve got to do something different so that doesn’t happen. We finished the game out and played hard for him, finished that drive for him, and that gave us a little extra fire and a little extra motivation toward the end of the game.”
