Quote:
Rainey took a shot to the head early in the game from Colts cornerback Jerraud Powers and had to go to the locker-room to be tested for a possible concussion. †Ralph Paul of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports today that Rainey told him that he begged the medical staff to clear him to return after he reportedly passed all of the concussion administered to him.

Rainey, who did return to action in the second quarter, was quoted by Paulk in his article as saying, "I woke up, and Iím still here."
I guess we will see what happens with this but I really don't think Rainey should have ben back in the game. The league talks about players safety a lot so we'll have to see what happens.

Until the NFL punishes the TEAMS for allowing the players to get back in their will not stop. The only way they will listen is with draft picks. Start with a 7th and move up after each one

This is a side note and kind of off subject....but did you notice the way he wears a helmet? Is his head shaped weird? The facemask is so high up that he basically looks underneath his facemask to see.

I've seen other players wear it like that also. I don't know why, maybe it's just extra tight

Didn't Deshea Townsend wear his like that too?

His helmet always looked 2 sizes too small
