This week will be the second installment of our game-day blogging. I will be tuned into the NFL RedZone and have the computer working overtime to bring up to the minute information regarding concussions. I truly hope this is the last update, but sadly I don’t think so.
If you see/hear of a concussion/head injury you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, comment in this post, or tweet me @concussionblog.
Here is to hoping we don’t have much to report.
@Atlanta_Falcons: INJURY UPDATE: Falcons’ starting safety Thomas DeCoud woozy after big hit on C. Benson. He walked off without assistance. #atlcin10
At this point last week we were discussing about 4 concussions, and questionable hits… Good to see that things are not nearly as busy… Also a Concussion Alum, Riley Cooper caught his first career TD, congrats…
Jeremy Maclin goes out a bit unsteady after taking a knee to the back of the head (he has returned to the game)
A “chain-gang” member in the Super Dome (New Orleans) was blasted and hit the back of his head, is now being put on stretcher. Reports have him losing consciousness.
Todd Heap had a very scary incident, as he collapses without contact in the Baltimore game. Last week he took a vicious hit to the head that the Ravens listed as “stinger/neck” which I have called out as BS… Could this be related, possibly, we will wait to see how things go later in the week. If he goes back in the game, I will be really surprised and dumbfounded…
And Todd Heap has returned… Anyone reading this, if you have an adolescent playing sports, DO NOT RETURN them after any brain disturbance…. I am extremely disappointing, but I guess I do not have all the facts, could have been “hypoglycemia”…
A seemingly triumphant day on the head injury front. Looks as though there has been NO official reports of concussions as of now. We will not officially know until Thursday.
