Mitch Morse in concussion protocol

We have multiple players that have started. You're not going to have a pro bowler behind the starter but we at least 3 players that can start 3-4 games. 

 

Hopefully he'll be OK.

That's a horrible situation... Just like last year. Center is too important to rely on a backup.

I could be wrong, but my guess is, if this was the regular season, he would be playing and no one would even know he had a concussion.  Best to take precaution in training camp, but I guarantee many concussions still go unreported every week in the NFL.

Being in the protocol does not mean he necessarily has a concussion...its an overly cautious approach.  That being said he COULD actually have one.

Glad it's not a knee or a shoulder or anything like that. We need our Center for when it counts. Let him sit the sidelines as long as they deem fit.

You don't want to rely on the backup at any position.

So we're looking at POTENTIALLY for parts of this season having Bodine--Felicano-a rookie on the right side.  

 

Yup.  I'm trading for Trent Williams today.  Get on the phone with the worst run franchise in sports today.  

 

I understand Trent has missed games to.  Not to concussions.  His injuries might have more to do with playing on the worst field in the NFL.  

 

Trent--Dawkins--Center Roulette--Spain--Ford

 

That looks much more palatable to me.

Speaking of which ...  I had seen this 

17 seasons of ailments: Tom Brady's entire reported injury history and ZERO concussions.

 

 

Tom Brady: my concussion history isn't anybody's business

 

 

Just don't as Gisele 

During an interview with CBS This Morning in May, Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, not only claimed that Brady suffered a concussion last season, but that he has suffered multiple concussions during his career.

I'd be curious to know (without taking the requisite time to dig into it) if Mark ever got another concussion while rocking that thing? I bet he didn't though. 

 

There have been tons of studies with regards to "soft helmets" rather than the hard helmets they currently use... Kelsos was a "soft helmet" where ofcourse it was rigid but it had give, as well, allowing the helmet to absorb some of the impact rather than just having the padding hold the helmet in place and allow the brain to still take the impact and be shaken up.

 

I posted an article on Billievers like 2 years ago where the company that manufactured them showed through their studies that the "Soft Helmets" reduced impact to the brain something like 60% better than standard helmets utilizing the same style impacts in simulated contact.  However people (trainers, coaches, players etc.) don't accept them because they aren't the norm, and players hate them because they look funny... 

 

If everyone had them, they may look goofy year 1, but by year 2 they'd be the norm an no one would look back, just like changing from leather to plastic. 

 

Something needs to be done about this from an equipment standpoint, and the sad truth is better options are out there but no one is using them.  Hell if i were an NFL player and it were proven I'd pay the fine to not wear NFL gear and wear that helmet instead.

So because you're worried about the health of our center....you want to trade for an offensive tackle, and then move our already-good starting left tackle to guard? 

I...um...huh.

Time for "Next Man UP".  Hopefully this is the last concussion for Morse and he plays the entire season. But if I'm McDermott I'm telling Beane to keep a keen eye out for a starting calibre center.

I was wondering the same thing myself 

 

I believe that this is what player must be out in when they have shown signs or symptoms of a concussion after taking a head shot.

How did Brady suffer a concussion last year?  By slipping on a bath mat?  You're not allowed to hit him while he's playing QB, so couldn't be from that.

Correct.  Stop acting like Dawkins is an all pro. 

 

He's taking reps at Guard already.  Because he's not clearly showing he's a franchise LT.  Not that he's not good or can't be.   

 

You win in this league with good olines and QB play.  I'd do all I can to prepare for more problems with Morse and Centers just can't be replaced so shore up the line as best you can.  

 

IF Williams is 100%.

Careful with these types of repeat posts. They can screw with other posters connections in here. At least I heard that from a mod once.

Spencer Long and Feliciano can both play center.

Unfortunately, not like Morse they can’t.

This is a major concern.  I remember his concussion history being brought up when this board was discussing Paradis vs. Morse as a FA signing.  

 

I know the Bills were pretty desperate to sign a C this year in FA, but that desperation may have created a huge blindspot.  That is not only a lucrative deal, but its a long contract they gave Morse.  If he starts missing games, or worse yet suffers another concussion in season, the Bills will be open to a lot of blame.

Still have to be better than Bodine’s 2018 form though, you would think.
