And no sane person would blame him.Jordan Reed took one of the most vicious helmet to helmet hits I've ever seen and is in the concussion protocol. It's quite possible that will be it for him and I don't think that's a dramatic take.
Yep. The pathetic response to what was an intentional brutal hit was a personal foul 15 yard penalty. No ejection. No neurologist check on Reed. Just let him keep playing, despite it being obvious to anyone - ANYONE - who saw the hit and his head bouncing around like he was in a high speed auto collision, that he'd suffered a concussion. That was absolutely disgraceful. The NFL is literally going to have a player like Reed die on the field. It's coming.And no sane person would blame him.
I saw far too many clowns on social media calling him soft, fragile, etc. I'd pay to see any of them take that hit.
That would be a start. But the NFL is afraid to get really tough, because they want those big hits in the game and the players who deliver them out there. I've had friends who fell off a porch or slipped and fell and hit their head with less violence than Reed experienced tonight. They walked around for a few days, then dropped dead from a subdural hematoma or other brain bleed. It's going to happen.First offense- miss as much time (games and practice as the injured party) with no pay.
Subsequent offenses- sit for a year with no pay.
I agree. Gruden seemed to elude to such in his post game comments as well. It sounded like since they were awarded the 15 yard penalty, that they were accepting of the manner in which it was handled at the time. I'm sure when they look back at the tape though, they will be outraged as a coaching staff.They may not have seen the hit immediately like we did on TV - I don't know. But the officials were right there - literally yards away. There's no excuse for being willing to take 10 minutes to make sure you get a sideline catch call correct, but not managing a player safety situation like that obviously was more appropriately. It really upsets me - and not just because we may have just lost a great TE for the season. You shouldn't risk brain damage routinely in order to make a living in a professional sport. It's outrageous.
Apparently he's had 3 confirmed ones before, probably a few hidden as well. That's gotta be a safety limit per league right?Only 2 stories from this one. First, Guice looked great and got extensive time. And Jordan Reed took one of the most vicious helmet to helmet hits I've ever seen and is in the concussion protocol. It's quite possible that will be it for him and I don't think that's a dramatic take.
Yeah it might have been JP Finlay and the NBC crew I heard it on.Gruden said he â€˜started having symptoms a little later'. Didn't specify why kind of symptoms but yeah that's correct so implementing the â€˜concussion protocol' was not just precautionary.
