Make no mistake-the NFL is making new rules primarily to cover their a**. They know they cant stop concussions. I agree though,it does seem like there is significantly more concussions this year. I know this is a long shot, but it makes me wonder if its staged in an attempt to revolt against the ridiculous rules that are being implemented. Hell, its already known that players fake injuries.

It's sounding legit. Vaccaro himself just confirmed he'll be out for the 49er game this Sunday...

Not sure what social media Kenny Vaccaro is supposed to have said this but I follow him on Twitter and don't see it on his account.

They used to call it "getting your bell rung". Players would come out for a few plays, maybe a quarter if they were really foggy and go back in. They didn't call it a concussion unless the player lost consciousness.

Re: Vaccaro Out 2 Weeks

I guess we'll see how this week progresses ... with concussions if he passes a test he'll be able to play, so I'm not ruling him out just yet.
