Drew Brees: Concussions are a “major issue”

While the NFL has had its fair share of sucess over the past couple years, they’ve also taken major hits. Their former players suing them could directly impact them from operating in the future.Their current players acknowledge it’s still a major problem. ThroughTMZ, Drew Brees chimes in:

Brees said, “I think it’s a major issue. It’s something that we need to continue to put research [into] and treatment protocols at the forefront to try to find ways to treat guys that have those long-term head and neck injuries when they leave this game.”

He added, “It is definitely a serious problem.”

Concussions are a major problem for the NFL that won’t be easy to solve.The league will lose a lot of future talent with more parents fearing head trauma for their kids and subsequently keeping their kids from playing.
