I felt completely clear. "I told him I was good, I was good and he said you got to come off. I think Walt did a great job". But he said I should go off the field. We went through the concussion stuff. "It was one of those things you just had to play through as long as you can, then when it goes, it goes". "I answered even some more just so they knew I was good and went back in there".

The concussion protocol was devised jointly by the NFL and the NFL Players Association as part of the continuing efforts on both sides at improving player safety.
