2011 NFL Concusison Report Week 12


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 information along with relevant statistics.  If we have missed a concussion or put one on here erroneously, let us know (we will also be using Fink’s Rule to classify a concussion/head injury).

A relatively quiet week on the concussion front in the NFL.  Of significance another player was places on IR due to concussions, Sidney Rice.  This is in direct contrast to another player who has his second incident of head injury, Troy Polamalu.  I really have nothing more to say this week so here are the stats (146 total concussions from camp on);

  • 110 Concussions/head injuries (104 W11)
  • 9.17 Concussions/week (9.45 W11)
  • 156 Projected Concussions (161 W11)
  • 0.61 Concussions/game (0.63 W11)
  • 10.82% InR (11.16 W11)
  • 9.19% EInR (9.48 W11)
  • 57 Offensive – 53 Defense
  • Positionally Speaking
    • QB – 3, RB – 10, TE – 14, WR – 12, OL – 18, DL – 9, LB – 16, DB – 28
