Tom Brady was among NFL players who reacted to the frightening head injury that Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagoviloa suffered in Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Brady said in “Let’s go!” Monday’s podcast thinks concussions in contact sports like soccer come with the area and believes part of the focus should be on preventing injuries before they happen.
“I think concussion is part of contact sports. I watch boxing and I watch UFC. People are being pushed out a bit. “It’s part of doing these very physical sports,” Brady said. “They all come with associated risks. And I think when you’re an athlete you choose to do that, you have to understand that that’s part of it, just as you can injure other parts of your body as well.”
“My view has always been an ounce of prevention is worth an pound of cure. Doing your best to really try to be proactive with your health and to make sure that when you get injured, you recover as quickly as you can and get the body in the best possible position to give it the best possible nutrients to handle Any shock you are exposed to.”
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was a mom when he asked if the NFL’s concussion protocols should be changed and wondered what more athletes could do to protect themselves from the grueling physique of contact sports.
“But, at the same time, again, I think a lot of the focus is kind of on the ramifications of that. I think what we can do beforehand in order to help us athletes be in a position where we can deal with the physical elements of the sport. Because you’re not going to be Being able to take her out of the sport, that’s not the reality,” Brady said. “If you were to play touch football with both hands, there wouldn’t be a lot of people following that. You know, concussions, knees, you know, I’d say most athletes would probably rather deal with a concussion than deal with a knee injury. .
“There will be knee injuriesThere will be ankle injuries, there will be concussions, there will be shoulder injuries. …I think we all kind of jump to these thoughts and conclusions in a short amount of time. But, at the same time, that’s exactly what sports are all about, and I think you have to take the good with the bad. I guess no one wants to see anyone get hurt. No one wants to see anyone injured. Nobody wants to see a concussion. Nobody wants to see a sprained ankle. Nobody wants to see a knee injury, but it does happen.
“How do we deal with them in the best possible way? What are the best practices associated with preventing them and if you are getting them? How do you recover as quickly as possible? I think this should really be a focus OK – how do you implement these protocols for athletes. It’s something we have to think about. In it all, so that we can do better in the future.”
