Dorin Dickerson admits hiding concussion on Sunday
Lions tight end Dorin Dickerson said Sunday that he hid a concussion from the team and tried to play through it.
Breaking news: An NFL player suffered a concussion, continued playing and didn't tell anyone. What does make that news is Lions tight end Dorin Dickerson admitting to it afterward, saying he "probably won't remember" talking to the media.
Dickerson admitted to reporters after the game that he "got a little concussion" and played through it until making two critical errors late in the fourth quarter.
"Got a little concussion. Should have reported it," Dickerson said. "Thought I could get through it."
"I mean, honestly, probably, after we leave here, I probably won't remember talking to you guys," Dickerson said. "I'm not trying to make excuses. I'm just telling the truth. I thought I had a pretty good game up until that play."
It's fairly, um, mind-blowing to have a player in this day and age say he probably won't remember speaking with the media. (Of course, that's probably why players who suffer concussions don't speak to the press in the first place ...)
We'll see whether or not Dickerson, who said he suffered the third concussion of his career, or the Lions will end up receiving any sort of punishment for not immediately reporting the head injury.
