They said a Grade 3 concussion meant you were knocked out, and a Grade 1 meant you were seeing stars after a hit, which made me burst out in laughter. As a middle linebacker in the NFL, if you don’t have five of these [Grade 1 effects] each game, you were inactive the next game. Junior played for 20 years. That’s five concussions a game, easily. How many in his career then? That’s over 1,500 concussions. I know that’s startling, but I know it’s true. I had over 1,000 in my 15 years. I felt the effects of it. I felt depression going on throughout my divorce. Junior went through it with his divorce.
Former NFL linebacker, and ex-teammate of Junior Seau, Gary Plummer • Making a truly shocking reflection on the price that playing in the NFL took on he and his late friend’s bodies. Junior Seau was discovered dead from a gunshot wound to the chest earlier this week, in what authorities ruled a suicide. The death has sparked a national dialogue about the long-term mental health impacts of multiple concussions, though no medical cause for his suicide has yet been determined – his family recently agreed to donate his brain for study. source (viafollow)
