“Mild” concussion for Eric Fisher

Fisher AP

While the term “mild” concussion tends to understate the severity of brain injuries, concussions have degrees.  And in the case of Chiefs right tackle Eric Fisher, his concussion is, per a league source, mild.

But it’s still a concussion, and the league now treats concussions very seriously, once the diagnosis is applied.

Fisher exited Sunday’s 31-7 win over the Giants with the head injury, and did not return.

The first overall pick in the 2013 draft, Fisher won’t be back until he gets clearance from an independent neurologist to practice and then to play.

The 4-0 Chiefs, who have now doubled their win total from 2012, take on the Titans next week at Tennessee.

    The NFL is the only group in the world that understands exactly how a human brain works. If they say it’s mild then surely you shouldn’t have any concern about that damaged region that no longer transmits electrical signals properly. That’s just fancy talk for saying when that part of the brain is needed you can just shake your head and the impulses will get thrown to the correct area. This stuff is all pretty simple science now that the brain has been completely mapped and fully understood how it works with zero mysteries about it.

    He certainly isn’t lighting it up.

    Stephenson is playing better than Fischer. 1st rd pick or not, maybe he needs to sit down for awhile. Albert will get hurt soon and then Fischer can go back to his natural position on the left side.
