NFL Concussion Report Through Week 10


After some tweaking of information gathering, I am making some changes to the Concussion Reports.  There will no longer be a listing on Saturday of the concussion list and their status for the games.  Rather, I will be putting all the information in the Concussion Report to appear on Fridays.  By making this change I feel that I will have a more comprehensive list.  The change was made in response to my feelings that some concussions are being missed by the NFL Official Injury Report, and that the reporters of the NFL are doing a great job of finding information.  Players are not listed on this list unless there are corroborated reports of concussion.  Now for the information…

  • Since Training Camp has opened there have been 96 concussions
    • 48 concussions on offense, 48 on defense
      • By Position; QB (8), RB (8), TE (10), WR (16), OL (6), DL (9), LB (11), DB (28)
      • The exterior players (WR/DB) make up 45.8% of concussions
      • Interior players (OL/DL) make up 15.6% of concussions
  • 7 players (Maurice Leggett, Jay Thomas, Freddy Keiaho, Mike Furrey, Hunter Hillenmyer, Darcy Johnson and Ben Hamilton) have been placed on Injured Reserve due to concussion
  • There have been 88 concussions during the regular season
    • Average of 8.8 concussions/week
    • Average of .58 concussions/game
    • 150 projected concussions at seasons end
    • Incidence Rate (# concussions/average players in NFL/week) is 14.17%
    • Epidemiological Incidence (# concussions/all players a.k.a. 53 man roster) is 8.82%
    • Clinical Incidence (# concussions/play) or chance of sustaining a concussion on any given play is 2.5%

Looking at the stats through Week 10 there are some glaring indications that some small changes could make an impact.

  1. Develop a position specific helmet.
  2. The higher the impact force (speed) the greater chance of a concussion, address rules.
  3. Investigate the impact the interior players are getting on a daily basis (sub-concussive forces) and the cumulative effects.

That is all I have for now but you can click on the continuation of this story for the full list.

    Thanks for this blog post. I’m writing a research paper about NFL player safety and this really helped.
