Collie must avoid contact.
The Article of the Day finds him telling Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star,
“It’s just a day-to-day thing,” he said. “There’s no definite timetable. Whatever the doctors say, whatever the coaches say, I’m going to obey.
I cannot fathom that response.
I'm not one to try and tell Collie how to live his life. The oft-concussed wide receiver has difficult choices to make and no one can tell him what he should do.
Having said that, how can a guy with his degree of head trauma ever be "day-to-day"?
If he's not 100 percent, he's got to be zero percent.
If Collie feels great, has no symptoms and is given a clean bill of health, that's one thing. If he's still on the fence, that's something else entirely. There's brave and tough, and then there's reckless. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, but nothing he said to the media yesterday makes sense to me.
Day-to-day. With a head injury.
Does that strike anyone else as insane?
