    Chicago Bears rookie safety Jaquan Brisker wound up in the NFL’s concussion protocol following Sunday’s loss in Atlanta. Brisker missed practice Wednesday, and his status for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets remains in question as he undergoes further evaluation. Brisker played 53 of 55 defensive snaps against the Falcons but was twice pulled off the field to be evaluated for a head injury. The first instance came on the Falcons’ opening series after the rookie tackled quarterback Marcus Mariota during a scramble. Brisker’s head slammed into the back of Falcons tight end MyCole Pruitt during the sequence, and the defensive back was slow getting to his feet. He was pulled from the game to be looked at but missed just one snap before returning. In the third quarter, Brisker was shaken up again after helping to take down Cordarrelle Patterson on a short run. It seemed like a routine play, but Brisker grabbed his head and appeared to be in discomfort after he hit the turf. He subsequently was taken off the field before the next play to...
    Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was ruled out for the rest of Kansas City's game against the Jaguars on Sunday after a scary hit by Jacksonville safety Andre Cisco left him in the concussion protocol. Smith-Schuster was coming across the middle to catch a pass from Patrick Mahomes when Cisco hit him high, drawing flags from the officials. Smith-Schuster was left motionless on the turf, with his hands momentarily frozen in a scene reminiscent of the concussion sustained by Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa earlier this season. JuJu Smith-Schuster took a very nasty hit today.

    LA Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford's wife, Kelly, revealed she was left concerned and angry after her husband entered concussion protocol as she urged the NFL to improve its care of players.  The Super Bowl-winning quarterback, 34, entered the protocol Tuesday afternoon after consultation with the Rams' medical staff, the team confirmed Wednesday. Following the announcement , his wife Kelly, 33, took to her 'Morning After' podcast's Instagram profile to share what a 'big deal' the situation is for her.  'If you follow NFL, you just heard Matthew got put into concussion protocol,' she posted to an Instagram story.  'If you have listened to my podcast at all, you know how a big a deal it is to me. The head is not something to be messed with…and I hope as this sport develops, so does the concern for head health and the research around it.'  Rams coach Sean McVay revealed that medics questioned Stafford following Sunday's 16-13 loss at Tampa Bay and concurred that concussion protocol was 'the appropriate thing'.  LA Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford's wife, Kelly (right), has slammed...
    Miami Dolphins star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered two scary medical episodes earlier in the season, and he’s broken his silence on it. Miami Dolphins star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered two scary medical episodes in back-to-back games earlier this season, and he’s broken his silence on it. Many were concerned about his health and safety, and he’s offered his own scary experience of the situation. According to Brian Wacker of the New York Post, Tagovailoa shared, “There was a point I was unconscious. I remember the entire night up until the point I got tackled. I don’t remember being carted off. I do remember some things from the ambulance and the hospital.” This statement was in regard to the latter Week 4 incident where Tagovailoa was sacked and fell to the ground unconscious with involuntary flexing of his arms and fingers. It’s unclear whether or not the Week 4 incident was related to the Week 3 one where he was tackled and remained conscious but stumbled while running off the field, looking completely dazed. He was taken out momentarily but returned before...

    The Miami Dolphins finally make the right call with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, one that is several days overdue at this point. ESPN broke some news on Monday that shouldn’t have been “breaking”: Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel officially ruled out quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in a Week 5 game versus the New York Jets. Breaking: Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel announced that QB Tua Tagovailoa will be out this week against the New York Jets. He is still in concussion protocol. pic.twitter.com/mFesLxKIOG — ESPN (@espn) October 3, 2022 Tagovailoa is still in concussion protocol, according to ESPN, and is expected to take the next week to continue his recovery after a frightening injury during Week 4. Tagovailoa seemed to exhibit troubling “neurological symptoms“, according to neurologists who spoke with Yahoo! Sports. It is suspected that Tagovailoa could have possibly experienced a concussion during a Week 3 match versus the Buffalo Bills, which is why the NFLPA decided to fire the independent neurologist who helped the Dolphins clear Tagovailoa for a return during the Bills game. “We are all outraged by...
    The NFL and NFLPA have announced they are working together to modify concussion protocols and anticipate to make changes in the 'coming days'.  The announcement came after Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was taken to hospital with a concussion in Thursday's NFL game against the Bengals after he finished out his side's win over the Bills last Sunday, despite receiving a brutal hit in the first half.  The decision to clear the quarterback and allow him to play against the Bengals was met with criticism and the league and the players' association have now agreed that modifications to the Concussion Protocol are needed to enhance player safety. The joint investigation into the application of the Concussion Protocol involving Tagovailoa remains ongoing and the statement said no conclusions about medical errors or protocol violations have yet been made.  The statement, released Saturday evening, read: 'The joint NFL-NFLPA investigation into the application of the Concussion Protocol involving Miami Dolphins' quarterback Tua Tagovailoa remains ongoing. Therefore, we have not made any conclusions about medical errors or protocol violations. 'The NFL and the NFLPA agree that...
    After officially escaping a concussion on Sunday in Miami, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had a different outcome in Cincinnati on Thursday, where he was diagnosed with a head injury following a medical evaluation process that is suddenly at the center of a growing controversy for the NFL. Tagovailoa was cleared to return Sunday, despite stumbling to the ground and continuing to struggle even after getting back on his feet. Teammates needed to help keep the 24-year-old Hawaiian upright before he was removed from the game moments before halftime. But as both he and the team later claimed, Tagovailoa was not suffering from a head injury, but rather, an aggravated and existing back problem. And his play certainly supported that assertion, as he returned in the second half to lead an upset win over the visiting Buffalo Bills. Afterwards, Tagovailoa and the Dolphins both said he was cleared by doctors, who had examined him for concussion symptoms.  Critics weren't buying it.   'If Tua takes the field tonight, it's a massive step back for #concussion care in the NFL,' Chris Nowinski, a...
    The NFL has vowed to learn from the concussion controversy surrounding Tua Tagovailoa after the Miami Dolphins quarterback suffered a sickening head injury just days on from another worrying collision that left him stumbling down the field. One prominent campaigner called for job losses and even jail time for Dolphins staff after Tagovailoa was hospitalized following the incident in Thursday's defeat by the Cincinnati Bengals. The quarterback was hurled to the turf in the first half and remained down for more than seven minutes. On Sunday, against the Buffalo Bills, the 24-year-old was seen shaking his head and stumbling to the floor, before returning to play shortly after. The quarterback was officially diagnosed with a back problem but a review is ongoing to determine whether the league's concussion protocol was properly followed.

    Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is not in concussion protocol, according to coach Mike McDaniel, despite concerns he may have suffered a head injury when he was slammed to the turf in the second quarter of Miami's win over Buffalo on Sunday.  Tagovailoa and McDaniel both said after the game that it was a back injury that was giving the third-year quarterback problems. And McDaniel reiterated Monday that Tagovailoa's back and ankle are 'sore' but the team will know more after he undergoes further testing. McDaniel didn't commit to whether Tagovailoa would play against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night. 'It's my first time on a Thursday night game with Tua, so I don't assume anything,' McDaniel said. 'But it wasn't out of the extreme norm of bumps and bruises after a game.' Tagovailoa took a hit from Bills linebacker Matt Milano and appeared to be disoriented as he got back to his feet. The Dolphins originally said it was a head injury, and Tagovailoa missed Miami's last three snaps of the first half. He returned to start the third quarter....
    Alex Caruso could miss Game 5 of the Chicago Bulls’ first-round playoff series after being placed in concussion protocol this weekend. Caruso took an inadvertent blow to the face from Milwaukee Bucks guard Jevon Carter in the second quarter of Sunday’s Game 4 loss. Carter’s arm swiped across Caruso’s face as he drove by the defender and appeared to make contact twice. The contact caused Caruso’s nose to bleed, which required several minutes of clean up before he could return to the game. Although Caruso insisted on playing through the quarter, coach Billy Donovan said the guard was visibly in pain and exhibited concussion symptoms in the locker room, which resulted in his removal from the game. Following further tests, Caruso was placed in concussion protocol Monday. Donovan said Caruso will be “day-to-day” as he continues to test, and the Bulls medical staff is unsure when he will be approved for contact again. “Now it’s about how soon does he start to not have symptoms anymore before he can get back in play,” Donovan said. “His availability in Game 5...
    Despite clearing concussion protocol, the New York Giants need to err on side of caution with Daniel Jones Chuck Vitolo October 16, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit With news breaking late Friday afternoon that New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has officially had his concussion injury designation removed from the team’s official report, most sources close to the team believe that means the third-year signal-caller is a lock to suit up on Sunday against the Rams. I’m here to tell you, however, that much like the New York Giants’ approach in just about every other respect over the past few years, that would be incredibly short-sighted. According to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, Daniel Jones suiting up for the New York Giants is exactly what is going to take place this weekend. Daniel Jones has no injury designation.This means the independent neurologist cleared him out of concussion protocol.This means Daniel Jones starts at quarterback for the Giants on Sunday vs. the Rams.—...
    25 drum solos, fills, breaks and intros that everyone should know Surprising Data Reveals The Top 25 Tax-Friendly States To Retire Richard Sherman once called it “an absolute joke.” Chris Nowinski, a prominent doctor, called it “a fraud.” Throughout its first decade of existence, the NFL’s concussion protocol quickly became a lightweight punching bag. Players, pundits and MDs ripped it to shreds. They branded it futile and faulty. And not even four years ago, in a single 32-day span, a barrage of blatant examples supported their claims. First there was Russell Wilson, appearing to bypass the protocol altogether. Then there was Jacoby Brissett, clutching his helmet after a concussive hit, but never missing an offensive play. And finally, in December 2017, there was Tom Savage. Nowinski, the co-founder and CEO of the Concussion Legacy Foundation, remembers it vividly. He remembers the Houston Texans quarterback being slammed to the turf and seizing up. An evaluation would later confirm the obvious: Savage was concussed. But first, he returned to the game. Nowinski recalled all this in a recent interview in part...
    Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes on Friday answered the question that was on every Kansas City fan’s mind ahead of the team’s AFC champion matchup against the Bills: Mahomes said he’ll be able to play Sunday after suffering a concussion in the Chiefs’ AFC divisional round win over the Browns. “We have the belief that I’ll have no lingering effects and I’ll be able to go out there and be who I am,” Mahomes told reporters Friday (via ESPN’s Adam Teicher). “You can only control what you can control. For me, that was coming in every day with a positive attitude, trying to make myself better, trying to prepare as if I was going to play. Luckily enough, I haven’t had any symptoms and I’m able to play.” IYER: Why Chiefs have edge over Bills in AFC championship game Mahomes’ availability was far from certain in the moments and days after the divisional round win; the fourth-year quarterback was clearly dazed after getting tackled by Browns linebacker Mack Wilson. That he can return to play is a big deal for...

    The NFL’s concussion protocol and its very specific timeline and guidelines could determine the fate of the Kansas City Chiefs’ season. Patrick Mahomes is concussed, and his status for the AFC Championship Game is in doubt. The Chiefs’ superstar quarterback was concussed during the third quarter of Kansas City’s divisional round win over the Cleveland Browns. While scrambling, he was brought to the ground with the tackler wrapped around his neck. Mahomes’ head collided with the ground while his neck appeared to be twisted. Mahomes tried to get up and initially struggled before falling back to the ground. He eventually ran off to the locker room before being ruled out for the remainder of the contest, forcing backup Chad Henne to hold on to Kansas City’s lead. IYER: Why Chiefs have edge over Bills in AFC championship game  With the win, the Chiefs set up an AFC Championship matchup with the Bills for the right to play in Super Bowl 55. But because of the NFL’s five-step concussion protocol, Mahomes’ availability may not be known until late in the...
