Brett Favre says he suffered ‘thousands’ of concussions
Brett Favre, who officially suffered only a handful of concussions during his 20-year NFL career, said Thursday he may actually have suffered “thousands” of concussions.
Appearing on NBC’s “Megyn Kelly Today,” Favre admitted he is dealing with short-term memory loss, and he worries about developing chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), the brain disease that plagues countless thousands of former football players.
Favre, 48, said the increased focus on concussions in recent years has led him to believe he had far more concussions than previously thought.
Favre played most of his career, 16 seasons, with the Packers, leading them to victory in Super Bowl XXXI. He is second all-time with 508 passing TDs and 71,838 passing yards.
Still, despite the discouraging news on Dotson’s meniscus, the Buccaneers could have him back in the fold well before the season starts. Rapoport reports that the veteran offensive lineman should recover in time for training camp.
Since arriving in Tampa as an undrafted free agent in 2009, Dotson has appeared in 100 games. He started 11 contests in 2017, all at right tackle.
After adding Cordy Glenn, the Bengals in the draft can either look to improve their offense or add a top defensive talent with their first-round pick. Hurst does not address a major need, but he is the type of defensive tackle the Bengals like.
After moving down from fourth overall, the Browns can get a high-upside defender in Josh Jackson and find themselves in the sweet spot for an offensive tackle later in Round 1. Williams is our top-rated offensive tackle, and in time, he can develop into the franchise left tackle Cleveland needs.
Cabinda says he believes Barkley has the chance to follow in the mold of former Eagles and current Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy.
“He’s very LeSean McCoy like, but bigger,” Cabinda said. “He can make you miss. He can run you over. He’ll jump over you. He’s very versatile in the passing game. You can spread him out in the slot. He can run routes form the backfield There are just so many ways he can beat you.”
