85% in the NFL would Play Super Bowl with Concussion

Date: February 3, 2014 Category: Uncategorized

Last week, you may have seen this article on ESPN.go.com, in which we find that 85% of NFL players would play the Super Bowl with a concussion. To London Fletcher, this came as no surprise. In fact, he expected a higher percentage: 100%.

Many amateur athletes might answer in the same way, seeing as the Super Bowl is a true once-in-a-lifetime experience for most, so playing with what seems to be a mild head injury is a no-brainer (pardon the pun).

However, we wouldn’t want a statistic like this to cloud the public’s judgment on the issue – we never recommend playing a sport with a concussion.

So, we offer the Play Safe Program for concussion management. The risk of further injury to the brain is never worth the glory associated with any level of sporting event. Your teammates will understand – stay safe and stay off the field until a doctor confirms your readiness to play.
