Tom Savage concussion makes clear that NFL's

The NFL's concussion protocol cannot possibly be considered adequate if it allowed Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage back into Sunday's 26-16 loss to the San Brandon Thompson Authentic Jersey Francisco 49ers. The policy has been improved and expanded dramatically in recent years, most recently to include discipline for failure to comply, but clearly it remains lacking in a fundamental way.
The image will be seared in our minds for some time. We all saw Savage's helmet slam off the NRG Stadium turf in Houston. He rolled over, his arms bracketed in an apparent display of what's known as the "fencing response." His hands twitched as though he were seizing.
Referee John Hussey immediately recognized Savage's distress. According to Texans coach Bill O'Brien, the team's medical staff administered a concussion test when the quarterback reached the sideline. And then, for reasons that will and should be under discussion in the NFL office at this very moment, Savage was cleared and returned to the game for one series. Only when further testing revealed a concussion were the Texans forced to declare Savage out.
Aside from its potential impact on Savage's long-term health, here's the biggest problem with that apparent order of events. If it happened that way, and our current evidence suggests that it did, then the Texans Laquon Treadwell Youth jersey didn't violate the NFL concussion policy as I understand it.
It's possible for concussion symptoms to be delayed, and we have several examples in recent years of players passing the test at one moment and then failing it later, including in Week 10 with Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
That's the first question the NFL must face as it reviews this policy in the coming weeks and months. Is the test too lenient if Brissett, Savage and others passed it moments after suffering the head trauma that ultimately caused a concussion? Should there be a mandatory waiting period after a hit to the head, one that would guard against the onset of belated symptoms?
People watching the game on TV often have a better view of what happened during a play than medical officials on either sideline. That's why the NFL has installed two certified athletic trainers in a booth above the field,each with a replay machine and a dedicated radio connection to the sidelines. There is also video equipment on the sideline for team doctors and unaffiliated neurological consultants (UNC) to review the mechanism of the injury.
So how could Savage possibly have been sent back into the game when the replay showed obvious concussion symptoms? Jordan Phillips Jersey While the policy provides the equipment, it does not require it to be used during the initial test. Instead, the policy states: "The sideline Jake Bischoff Womens Jersey medical staff will be able to review the game film on the sidelines to obtain information on particular plays involving possible injury."
