Tom Brady used to be amongst NFL gamers who reacted to the dreaded head injury suffered via Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in Thursday night time’s sport towards the Cincinnati Bengals.
Brady mentioned at the “Let’s Go!” podcast Monday he believed concussions in touch sports activities like soccer include the territory and believed that section of the point of interest must be on fighting accidents ahead of they occur.
“I think concussions are a part of contact sports. I watch boxing and I watch UFC. People are knocked out quite a bit. That’s part of playing these very physical sports,” Brady mentioned. “All of them come with risks associated with it. And I think when you’re an athlete that chooses to do that you gotta understand that’s part of it, just like you can injure other parts of your body as well.

“My view has always been an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. To do your best to really try to be proactive with your health and to make sure that when you do get injured you can recover as quickly as possible and get your body in the best position possible to give it the best nutrients as possible to deal with whatever trauma you come into contact with.”
PATRIOTS’ BILL BELICHICK SAYS PLAYERS GO THROUGH ‘COACHING CLEARANCE’ EVEN IF THEY ARE MEDICALLY CLEARED
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback used to be mum when he requested whether or not the NFL’s concussion protocols must be modified and puzzled what extra athletes may just do to give protection to themselves from the often-brutal physicality of touch sports activities.
“But, at the same time, again, I think so much is focused kind of on the aftermath of that. I think what can we do in advance in order to help us athletes be in a position where we can deal with the physical elements of sports. Because you’re not going to be able to take them out of sports, that’s just not the reality,” Brady mentioned. “If you want to play two-hand touch football, there’s not gonna be a lot of people that tune in. Concussions, knees, you know, I’d say most athletes would probably rather deal with the concussion than deal with the knee injury.
“There’s gonna be knee accidents, there’s gonna be ankle accidents, there’s gonna be concussions, there’s gonna be shoulder accidents. … I feel all of us type of bounce to those ideas and conclusions in a brief length of time. But, on the identical time, that is simply what sports activities are, and I feel you simply gotta take the nice with the unhealthy. I feel that nobody ever needs to look someone get harm. No one needs to look someone injured. No one ever needs to look a concussion. Nobody needs to ever see an ankle sprain. No one ever needs to look a knee injury, however they occur.
“How do we deal with them in the best possible way? What are the best practices associated with prevention of them as well as if you do get them? How do you recover as quickly as possible? I think that should be really a focus as well – how you implement those protocols for athletes. It’s something we should all think about, so we can do a better job of it in the future.”
The NFL and NFL Players Association introduced an investigation into the Dolphins’ dealing with of Tagovailoa’s preliminary injury suffered in Week 3 towards the Buffalo Bills.
