Steelers running back Isaac Redman admits he suffered a concussion during the Steelers week two loss to the Bengals. He was able to get back into the game after fooling the team doctors.
“I had a concussion,” Redman said Wednesday, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I was pretty much out of it the rest of the game. I just tried to go back in.”
Redman didn’t to anything extravagant to trick the doctors.
“I said I was all right,” he answered.
And the doctors listened to him? That’s not good.
I wonder if the NFL can fine either Redman or the Steelers for this. They do need to protect themselves against concussion lawsuits down the road.
Update: Steelers are denying that Redman played with a concussion.
