    But Bennett and Melton are feeling much better since suffering concussions. Melton said it was the first concussion of his playing career, including at Texas when he was a running back. “Just not being out there because I know we have a huge season ahead of us and not really knowing when I was going to start feeling better exactly, it was a little nerve-racking,” Melton said, “but finally the clouds cleared, and I feel good.” But now that they’ve dissipated and the protocol has been satisfied, the duo has been cleared for Sunday’s Week 1 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals “I know we have a huge season ahead of us, and not really knowing when I was going to start feeling better exactly, it was a little nerve-wracking,” Melton said. “It’s a little bit scary, seeing the past players, and they just had the settlement with some of the ex-players,” Bennett said. “It’s kind of concerning, but at the same time, when I signed up for this game, I knew what I was signing up for.
