St. Petersburg Times: The hit that knocked Ike Hilliard
unconscious Oct. 19 could force him to miss some games and
threatens to end his season. Hilliard, 32, still is experiencing
headaches from the helmet-to-helmet blow he sustained when he was
sandwiched between Seattle linebackers Leroy Hill and Lofa Tatupu
nearly four weeks ago. Hilliard has not missed a game since but
said his condition has not improved and worried earlier this week
he might need surgery. As a rookie with the Giants in 1997,
Hilliard underwent spinal fusion surgery, so the latest injury is
particularly worrisome. But after consulting with doctors Tuesday,
Hilliard has decided to rehab the injury and is expected to miss
Sunday's game against the Vikings. "I've been dealing with
something on and off for the last five years, but now it's
constant,'' Hilliard said. "Obviously, after the hit, it's
something I've got to get control of.''
