It's not like the dude just falls on the ground or takes regular hits and winds up concussed. The hit he took there has been pretty much phased out of the NFL and even drew a flag in college.

I know it's easier to get concussions after you've had them, but I don't think he's going to be subject to many of those kinds of hits.
From what I've read, he had 3 already.

And I just heard on the local news last night that ex-NFL players (in the thousands) are suing the league for issues relating to concussions.

Here's what I found on the web.
It says 4,000 plaintiffs are involved.
