"It's just a blow to the head. You lose memory, short term memory, for a little bit, a day or so and then it comes back to you."
"Yeah, I've definitely had a couple concussions throughout my years of playing football. It's pretty crazy; everything feels a little blurry, a little fuzzy. Sometimes, after a while, you have to bounce back, but you really have to know your body. If you can't go, if your vision is blurry and you feel that as a competitor and as an athlete you want to play, you have to know your limits. Concussions can be very serious."
"Fortunately I've never had a concussion. It's a serious issue. I can't really speak on it, I'm not very knowledgeable. I just hear a big argument about player safety and concussions being a big thing. I guess it's a big focus of the NFL and I think the NFL is making strides in improving the safety of the players and hopefully the rate of that goes down."
