Baker was immobilized and taken off during the third quarter of play. He raised his arm prior to being carted off and had movement in his extremities. The team announced he was ruled out with a concussion and that he’d been taken to a local hospital for further evaluation, but he was alert, communicative, and never lost feeling or movement, according to the medical staff.

In a video he shared Tuesday on Instagram, Baker told his fans that he was feeling fine and had been cleared by doctors. In fact, he’s going to make “a full recovery.”


Baker was named to his fourth Pro Bowl this season, had 98 tackles and three interceptions in the regular season.
