NFL Concussion Report Week 14 UPDATE


The Concussion Blog Original, NFL Concussion Report is a weekly compiling of the reported head injuries in the National Football League.  Concussions are added to the list each week from multiple sources to give you the reader a picture of what is happening on the field.  Each week we will bring you the list of players along with relevant statistics.  If we have missed a concussion or put one on here erroneously, let us know.

Last week there was a down-turn in concussion/head injury numbers, however that was not the rule, as Week 13 brought more than average numbers, 11.  The total reported concussions/head injuries since training camp opened is now 126, 118 of them from the regular season.  Both Miami and San Diego scratched the concussion column last week leaving only Tamp Bay and Buffalo with no reported regular season listings.  On those lines we have a new leader in the team reports, Carolina.  You will see on the listing that both Austin Collie and Will James were added in Week 13, they had been listed previously, however they were reported to have sustained another head injury.  Here are the stats;

UPDATE: Thanks to a follower for cluing me in on the Chad Clifton concussion…  He is listed but it is listed at “knees”…  So how many other teams and players have used another injury to supersede a concussion?  Joseph Addai?  The stats have not changed to reflect this addition, it will make next week’s report.

    You may have missed a concussion this past week. Chad Clifton was dx with a concussion on Monday following the Packers/49ers game.
