It’s well known that the NFL’s concussion protocol is an absolute joke and that players are recklessly okayed to return to play all the time. We had another horrifying example of this today when Texans quarterback Tom Savage took a huge hit from the 49ers’ Elvis Dumervil and literally started convulsing on the field (see above).
Now suffering a seizure on the field should sideline a player indefinitely, right? Wrong! Savage returned to this meaningless game for a brief period before eventually leaving for the locker room. He was diagnosed with a concussion, to which we all say “No ****.”
