Daily Haze: A Video Compilation of the Year in NFL Concussions
One of the biggest story lines of the 2010 NFL season has been the number of concussions suffered by players around the league on a weekly basis.
Perhaps the new concussion testing standards implemented by the NFL have increased the frequency of diagnosis, or maybe fans, the media and the league are just paying more attention to head injuries now that ever before.
Either way, this is a good thing for the players. Better protection needs to be in place for these guys to enjoy life after football.
Deadspin put together a video compilation of the concussion suffered to date by NFL players. Pretty scary stuff.
In concussion news:
DeSean Jackson [WR, Eagles]
"With a well-timed bye included in the mix, it now looks more likely Jackson will only miss one game. Eagles coach Andy Reid said on his radio show Monday night that Jackson has already passed his concussion test."
Good news for Jackson and the Eagles. He now has an extra week off to get his head right and get prepared for Philly's next game. Fantasy owners were going to be without his services this weekend, anyway.
Here are today's great reads:
- Seattle's Mike Williams has 21 catches the last two games. Let that sink in for a minute. The guy who was left for dead after busting his first few seasons is back from the dead thanks to his former college football head coach. Comeback player of the year? [The Fifth Down]
- The aftermath of Tony Romo's injury figures to play out in fantasy leagues this morning as waiver wire claims get processed. But Romo is not the only high-profile fantasy player dealing with an injury after Week 8 of the NFL regular season. Fantasy owners have their work cut out for them this week on the waiver wire.

- Has the torch been passed in the Tampa Bay backfield? Cadillac Williams has been mostly ineffective this season as the featured tailback, while rookie LeGarrette Blount continues to wait in the wings. Looks like change may be in the air for the Bucs going forward. [SI.com]
- Ryan Fitzpatrick has singlehandedly breathed fantasy football life back into the Buffalo Bills. Who would have thought that would have been possible when the 2010 season started? Lee Evans is now an interesting option again, and Steve Johnson quickly is becoming a household name. [Roto Arcade]
