    Default PFT: Stephen Davis Aleady Experiencing Memory Loss

    Former Redskins and Panthers running back Stephen Davis said Wednesday he’s beginning to have problems with short-term memory, and he added another name to the growing docket of concussion lawsuits.

    Davis, 38, told Nathan Fenno of the Washington Times he’s having trouble remembering conversations with his wife or paying bills.

    Davis filed his lawsuit last week, one of more than 2,600 former players to have done so. He said he can’t remember how many concussions he sustained, but said there would be multiple ones in the span of a few weeks.

    “The coaches and doctors try to get you back on the field regardless of if you’re hurt or not hurt or have a concussion,” he said. “It’s more about getting you back on the field than making sure you’re OK.

    There is a lot of controversy around all of this between the NFL and the players association. But I can say one thing for sure. Stephen Davis was a damn good running back and I loved cheering for him. It's a shame the way he left this team and if what he says is true then I feel awful for him. That is entirely too young to have your brain fall apart.

    He was a great player. He really didn't get enough credit for such a solid career.

    I was going to say it, but had to refrain.

    Too soon?

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.
