Luke officially out with concussion as reason

Recommended Posts



The possibility of him missing at least one game seemed pretty high. Not really surprised at all.

So it's a confirmed concussion and not just 'in the protocol'

Definitely not a confirmed concussion (don't have any definitive answer on this and not sure we will).  But definitely confirmed he is still "in the protocol"

With Luke out, if Coleman can make it back I'd feel a whole lot better about communication in the secondary. I think Mayo can handle the game especially with a full week practice as a starter under his belt. TD mentioned in a locker room presser that he and Shaq also need to step up communicating without Luke there to count on.

Guys, look at it this way. To repeat, he either definitely had a concussion, or in doctor speak, no rule out, which ends up meaning the same thing for practical purposes, and in reality, about everything else. Once concussed, they're easier to get. The initial abrupt change in head direction during the sequence was more than theoretically enough. On a positive note, helmet and pads with arguable contact with the sled like gizmo should be a  stage five activity. It's not a big leap to assume his appointment Monday is for full clearance assessment.

Honestly not a huge deal, I think we can beat the Bears without him. Need him later this year. I really do wish though that he never had a concussion like was reported last Sunday, but the fact that this one is taking much quicker to get over from than last year, is honestly a very good sign for his outlook. If his head was really f*cked up, the one this year would probably be more like Oher's and he'd be out indefinitely, or at least longer than he was out last year.

Why were you so quick to call Person a jackass when he said Luke wasn't going to play?

people still denying this was a concussion need to face facts. it sucks. luke doesn't miss games for hurt feelings. if they found a way to keep him off the field, it's a concussion. putting your fingers in your ears and humming isn't going to make it any less real. the good news is that his recovery rate appears to be shorter this time. hopefully they give him all the time he needs.

I didn't call him a jackass because of that, but because of his continued effort to stir sh*t up with how the team has handled injuries, such as Cam's and Luke's in the past.
