This is why I hope the NFL institutes an IR system somewhat like that of baseball where any player can be returned. Pat Kirwin of NFL Radio has been lobbying for that for some time now. The only reason it is the way it is now is because the NFL was worried about teams stashing away players with fake injuries. That can be easily addressed with an independent medical examiner that can give approval for players going on and coming off IR.
The NFL's apprehensiveness of further litigation regarding chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) also has to factor into post-concussion protocols...

Look, most everyone is ready to throw the towel in on PJ. Why?!? But take a second and look at that play - a horse could have kicked him with the same result...

Sean Payton in interview as quoted by Nola.com, "It's a concussion, but yet it's one significant enough that you wouldn't really see on a normal basis...He'll be able to make a full recovery. He'll be able to return to football in the offseason, and yet I would say probably one of the more severe concussions that I've seen. It's not measured by just on the field, the series of tests they do that they're able to determine how much trauma in the event, and this is one where the rest and recovery is going to be necessary. And all the experts really take a peek at all the different slides and scans, and so that made the decision then to put him on IR obviously an easy one -- and yet challenging."

I don't expect them to make an IR exemption for concussions as they could be made culpable in further litigation...

And look, P.J. has showed he's a gamer. A soldier. He'd want to get right back out there; but who's gonna assume the liability if he's out there in four to six weeks?

IR-No Return is the best answer with those concussion injuries...

I'll be really pulling for him to come back with an outstanding season like he had in the Raiders game and show that he was a steal in the third round...
