The play happened early in the third quarter when Clark took on the block of Young during an Alfred Morris run. Clark dipped his left shoulder to take on the block and was struck in the back of the head by Young’s right shoulder.
Clark was sprawled out on the ground holding his head before walking off the field on his own power a few moments later.
Clark will have to undergo a series of ImPACT concussion test throughout the week before being medically cleared by the medical staff to play against New York Sunday afternoon
The Steelers are already shorthanded at safety with Troy Polamalu‘s calf injury. Will Allen and Ryan Mundy finished the game at safety on Sunday.
