Ravens receiver Brandon Stokley suffered another concussion on Sunday, at least the 14th of his football career.
Stokley said after suffering a concussion at the end of the 2010 season that he had suffered more than a dozen concussions in high school, college and the NFL. Today Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed that Stokley suffered another one.
Like all NFL players, Stokley will have to go through the league’s protocol and get cleared by a doctor before he will be permitted to practice or play. Some would say Stokley shouldn’t play at all, and that at age 36 he ought to call it a career.
Stokley, however, has said every time the subject of concussions comes up that he loves football too much to walk away. He’ll keep playing as long as he can, even if the concussions continue.
