nflShould Jamaal Charles have undergone concussion testing after a big hit on Sunday? (Shutdown Corner)
On the first play of the second quarter of Sunday's victory against the San Diego Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles pulled off an impressive 16-yard broken-field run for a touchdown. However, the play ended with a vicious hit from cornerback Brandon Flowers. While Flowers left the game with a concussion, Charles stayed in ... even though he might have been at real risk for a concussion. “It definitely hurt,” Charles told ESPN Radio . “It’s like, I woke up ... I mean, like, a couple plays later I was seeing light bulbs, like, light bulbs around my eyes, and I was trying to catch them. But I was in the game so I was like, ‘Alright, let’s get the ball and run again.'" Was Charles concussed? Perhaps, perhaps not. As LBS notes , "light bulbs around my eyes" are a definite concussion symptom. However, Charles managed to avoid getting tested by the independent doctor on the Chiefs' sideline, in part, Charles says, because he wanted to stay in the game. Charles was taken out of the Chiefs' playoff game last year against Indianapolis, and the Chiefs ultimately lost that game.

"But I don’t think I had to go through the concussion protocols and all that. I didn’t want to go through that again because of what happened in the playoffs. I was definitely fine, I think I came out pretty good." Charles ended up rushing 22 times for 95 yards and that one touchdown. This, then, is the key issue in the ongoing battle to take concussions seriously: if the very players getting concussed don't always want to take the necessary steps to protect themselves, what can the NFL and teams do? Doctors can and do order players out of games, but in certain borderline circumstances, unless the player self-reports, there are situations in which a concussion test isn't ordered or presumed. Obviously, there are situations in which it's obvious a player was concussed, but on many plays, it falls to the player himself for initial self-diagnosis. And if the player understands the downside of coming out of the game, the long-term health concerns take a back seat to immediate short-term gains. ____ Jay Busbee is a writer for Yahoo Sports.

NFLAP source: Goodell told to testify in Rice appeal (Yahoo Sports)
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been told to testify in Ray Rice's appeal of his indefinite suspension, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Wednesday night. District Judge Barbara S. Jones, the neutral arbiter selected to hear the appeal, informed the parties of her decision Wednesday. Because it isn't a criminal case, it's uncertain whether Goodell will actually testify in a private arbitration. He said this month he would leave the decision to Judge Jones.
