    Who are they? Henderson in the dp said according to HCMM 2 players will "probably" medically redshirt this year due to concussions?

    Kyle Washington?

    The article mentioned Powell as a possibility. Man that would be horrible

    Orms and Yuri both had a couple...

    Did an offensive lineman have a bad one or two?

    I guess MacIntyre said Orms wasn't one. Are we not supposed to link dp articles?

    I would guess the vast majority of the team had a concussion during the season. Not being cute, but I had concussions just playing HS ball. Given the greater size, speed and athleticism of CFB, I would guess most get one during the year. The trick is telling the serious ones from the not so serious.

    Perhaps. But I think people are discussing players who missed games due to concussions. I thought Vigo missed the next game after his big WSU performance due to a concussion, but I can't recall.

    Also need to remember that Embree was extremely cautious when it came to concussions

    Maybe some posters need a RS year because of concussions....:lol:


    I think Vigo, Topou, Orms, KWash and Pow Pow all had concussions that resulted in missed time. Jordan Webb did too, I think.

    as an ex-lawyer, i'm no longer compelled to bloviate excessively. i can be churlish and snarky concisely.

    that should have happened anyways; powell should never have gotten more than 15 carries a game.

    Is there such a thing, more accurate might be a recovering lawyer, or rehabilitating lawyer.

    My uninformed guess tells me that Vigo is one of them. He had at least two last year, possibly three.

    The coaches over-used Powell last season, plain and simple. I said so at the time, so no sour grapes here.

    Not so far. Ask 96 if you have any questions.

    What is a clear definition of concussed anyway? I've heard a variety. If its anytime u get your bell rung a bit, good grief. I do agree with the Pow getting too much work. He toted it quite a bit for somebody that hasn't done much of that and he is a physical back.

    I agree that his workload was sometimes excessive but had he not been moved to tailback he would have been the primary blocking back and been even more prone to concussion. Howard Griffith who was the Broncos FB stated that by todays standards he would have sat more than played. His blocking responsibilities meant that virtually every play he had a violent collision with a defender, normally a bigger defender than him. Going on he said that he had concussion symptoms for weeks on end but still played, it was part of being a FB.

    All that said I hipe that Pow isn't one of the RS candidates. I also hope that an off-season let's him get healthy and that he can go into next season healthy. Also that the coaches can work with him to modify his running style to reduce the solid shots he takes and reduce his wear and tear.

    too bad - he was effective, especially against the spread. But makes sense - he barely showed up after the concussion issues cropped up.
