Rodney Harrison Suggests Josh Freeman Is Faking Concussion Injury

Tim KeeneyContributor IOctober 24, 2013

The Minnesota Vikings announced on Tuesday they would be sticking with new quarterback Josh Freeman despite a disastrous Week 7 debut, but just a day later, the struggling quarterback was diagnosed with a concussion

NFL analyst and former safety Rodney Harrison isn't buying it. 

In an interview with The Amani & Eytan Show on NBC Sports Radio, Harrison stated that he believes Freeman doesn't really have a concussion:

I can't say that I believe that he has a concussion. I can't say that I'm 100 percent sold out. I'm not trying to doubt the seriousness of his injury, if he has one, but it just seems like a convenient excuse to get out of a situation. That's what it seems like. [...]

I played safety at a high level for a long time and I was bangin' and I never missed a game because of a concussion, so it just seems like an excuse to me.
