Quarterback Jaren Hall of the Minnesota Vikings, who made his NFL debut on Sunday, sustained a concussion in the first quarter and will not play again, the team revealed.

After a 3-yard scramble on third down, Hall was hurt at the end of the Vikings' second drive. Both linebacker Kaden Elliss and cornerback Jeff Okudah of the Atlanta Falcons hit him hard, and the back of his head struck the grass at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with great force. Players and officials started calling for medical help right away, but Hall finally got up and left the pitch on his own.

Josh Dobbs, who the Vikings acquired from the Arizona Cardinals last week after starting quarterback Kirk Cousins suffered a season-ending Achilles injury, took Hall's spot.

With 4:06 left in the second quarter, wide receiver K.J. Osborn of the Vikings also went down due to a concussion.

Okudah struck Osborn in the head just after he caught a 13-yard catch from Dobbs to convert a third-and-eight. After lying still for a while, Osborn was eventually encircled by the whole Vikings squad on the pitch.

At first, medical personnel removed a backboard, but Osborn finally got to his feet and moved independently to a cart. As he was driven into the Vikings' locker room, he offered a thumbs-up.

He scrambled to the 1 before absorbing a hit from Jeff Okudah and Kaden Elliss in the face of a third-and-goal from the 4.

Hall hurried to the Vikings locker room as teammates screamed for the training staff.

Hall was replaced by Joshua Dobbs, who was acquired on Tuesday via trade. Dobbs is the only other quarterback in action in Minnesota.

Week 8 against Green Bay resulted in Kirk Cousins' season-ending Achilles injury, and veteran backup Nick Mullens is on injured reserve.

Nick Mullens, an experienced player, was the Vikings' starting backup quarterback until the start of the season. However, Mullens has been sidelined since October 11 due to a back injury. The only other quarterback listed as active on Sunday was Dobbs. A member of the practise squad is Sean Mannion.
