NFL Concussion Report Week 15


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.

Another high-profile week for concussions as Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers sustained a concussion, for the second time in 9 weeks.  As we have discussed this is just another opportunity for the NFL and the Packers to use current concussion management to “get it right”.  If Rodgers has no symptoms, no balance issues, no sleep disturbances and has tested back to baseline then he can and should return.  If any of the above are not “normal” then he should sit out.

With the late addition of Chad Clifton last week and the eight new concussions this week we are ready to present your Week 15 NFL Concussion Report;
