Default Ben's Head is Swollen

I am not trying to be funny.

I heard a news story on Sports Talk radio that Ben's head swoll up after his head injury and concussion, and that when he went to practice today, his helmet did not fit.

I never wish for anyone to get hurt, but that should make you think if you are ready to come back. Would not want Ben's career cut short becasue of concussion syndrome like Aikman.

I read that, too.

They should just pack him in ice and only get him out on Sundays.

Rivers' head would be too if he had a SB ring.

first of all, ben is no doctor, but unlike tom brady he has NEVER shied away from giving his own medical report.

what he actually said was that he did get a headache after practice and that his helmet felt "tight".

thats understandable. just the pressure of actually having a helmet on his head probably hurt.

im no doctor but i doubt that his head is still swollen. i would equate it to having a hangover and going out into the bright sun. anyone who has done this, knows it can make your head hurt even though your head size doesnt actually physically increas and the sun doesnt make it grow.

it does sound like bens concussion was a little bit more than the "mild" one that was reported. it sure as hell looked like more.

i know he wants to have a career as long and productive as elway/marino, but he is really heading down the aikman/young highway.

Yes it is, can never understand how motorcycle riders can hit their head on pavement and not get a concussion but a football player hitting turf can get one.
