Weatherford, who expressed via Instagram that he walked away uninjured and got a ride home with some state troopers, later texted that he had a "couple cuts and burns, busted lip" and added that he "should be dead."
The Giants will have their questionable players Week 10 against the Seahawks.
Zack Bowman, Cullen Jenkins and Mathias Kiwanuka will all play. Bowman is dealing with an abdomen injury. Jenkins has a calf issue, and Kiwanuka is dealing with a knee injury.
The team will also have Weston Richburg, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Steve Weatherford. All three players were listed as probable coming into the contest.
