Reading that, it also isn't clear it actually was a concussion.


I think it's clear, but I agree that even that is somewhat in question based on what was written.

After rereading his article, I'm of the opinion that he should retire. It's not worth his long term health to risk another episode. These situations never end well. I know some former pros who continue to struggle with lingering symptoms long after their careers have ended.
