i admire the kid's courage, but if you get knocked out you stay out next time. risking brain damage isn't worth it.

i'm surprised the kid passed the concussion tests, getting knocked out usually = concussion guaranteed.

Getting knocked out means brain damage to some extent. I hope he is just being an attention ***** when he claims to have been knocked out

Good point - maybe #7 is his role model when it comes to describing the extent of injuries He is not going to get cut whether he sat out the game or not so it is not as if he is some FA who is looking for a non-football job if he did not force his way back on the field

I agree with you that if Rainey lost consciousness and was put back in the game I have to wonder what sort of legittimate "tests" he possibly could have passed - the doc needs to provide the brake on these players trying to man up and always return to action

But as Tony says, players other than Harrison need to get the fact Tomlin does not want players talking to the media about injuries

Exactly, maybe just selling it to the media a bit. There is being disoriented and then being out cold.

I remember losing a few minutes of memory after a concussion, but I wasnt out cold and was still able to manage parenting my 2 kids afterwards.

Default Re: Rainey says he was knocked unconscious before they put him back in

I understand that him being actually KO'd and then coming back into the game could be a problem, especially since this is a hot topic right now, but if the doctor's cleared him to play and he wasn't diagnosed with a concussion, I don't see what could come of it.

As for him going back in, that's absolutely ridiculous. I understand Tomlin wanting the rookies to get used to "toughing out" hits like that, but if your knocked unconscious IN PRESEASON then you should be on the bench. It's just preseason, Rainey is very unlikely to get cut and the 1st team offense seemed to either be struggling or just mailing it in, so the fact that Rainey came back in is absolutely ridiculous. If he's not talking it up and he was actually having problems controlling his feet and legs, then another big hit could have ended his career and/or life in preseason. Sounds extreme but when your already hurt your more vulnerable, he could have been knocked into a vegetable, no joke. I'm all for player toughness and if a player has a broken arm taped up and begging the coach to go back in, then let him back in. But the head injuries really have to be treated differently. I don't agree with all the new BS surrounding the concussion issue and the NFL, but putting him on the bench should have been common sense.

If he did actually lose consciousness, I'm betting that he failed to mention that to anybody until he was interviewed after the game. The responsibility lies as much with the player as it does with anybody else in this case. If he had trouble keeping his feet, he needs to be more honest and tell the coaches.
