So this week there are some interesting concussions that were worth watching, Rodgers, Eric Smith and Austin Collie. The last is the most interesting coming off multiple concussions and now returning.
He scored a TD early and it was noticed by @injuryexpert and others that he was wearing a shaded eye shield. According to @injuryexpert (Will Carroll) he is wearing that because of continued sensitivity to light. Full recovery of concussion includes not returning until ALL symptoms have resolved. If he was not sensitive to light before the injuries, wouldn’t he still have symptoms? I would think so.
It will be interesting to see how the media, Colts and Collie handle this situation.
And that is why playing with multiple concussions is dangerous, get up Austin! A very mundane looking head bouncing off turf… Glad he got up…
Austin Collie listed as concussion, now his THIRD of the year… Get well soon…
UPDATE: see new post above.
Two Cowboys lost to concussion today… http://sports.espn.go.com/dallas/nfl/news/story?id=5936131&campaign=rss&source=NFLHeadlines
