Fantastic infographic on concussions in the NFL broken down by team, by year, and by position.

Thankfully, we're further down the list for 2012.

pretty impressive, esp. considering the number of other injuries we have had.

Pretty much what I'd expect except for the differences in Guard, Tackle, and Center.  I guess I could see tackles being a little less as they are less likely to pull.  But to have such a huge difference between Guard and Center is surprising.

I wonder if it has something to do with the Center's body posture out of the snap?

 

Ref WR's being so high, not surprising.  I once knew an ex NFL receiver decades ago here in CLT, who was probably a genius with brain cells to spare, that I heard recently died from devastating dementia, probably concussion related.
