The NFL continues to struggle to ensure that potentially concussed players are kept out of game action.
According to Pam Oliver of FOX, Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari forced his way onto the field while being evaluated for a concussion.
Bakhtiari, a rookie who was thrust into the starting lineup after Bryan Bulaga tore an ACL in the preseason, was able to participate in the PAT attempt following the fourth-quarter touchdown that gave the Packers their second lead of the day. He later was taken to the locker room for a full evaluation.
His ability to get past doctors and trainers for the PAT once again highlights the lingering flaws in the league’s procedures for getting potentially concussed players off the field and away from the risk of suffering a second concussion in the immediate aftermath of his first one.
