• Don Banks: Collie determined not to let concussion stigma cloud his NFL future

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Mar 6, 2013
    Collie told Don Banks of SI.com that the knee injury that cut short his 2012 season, and especially the multiple concussions he has suffered, will have teams wondering whether he’s ever going to make it through an NFL season again. Austin Collie doesn’t plan to quit playing football after the Colts released him, but he does understand that if he’s going to remain in the NFL, he’s going to have to find a team that can be convinced he can stay healthy. For the record, Collie, an unrestricted free agent who played in just one game last year, will be trying to convince teams that his right knee, the one that had season-ending surgery last September for a ruptured patellar tendon, is again whole. Or soon will be. So everybody obviously uses me as the poster boy for the concussion issue. “I had those two high-profile concussions on national TV back in 2010, the year everyone started to really make a huge deal about concussions in this league, and there I was, Exhibit A, right in the middle of it all.
