Jaguars WR Laurent Robinson's NFL Future Clouded By Concussions
Following four concussions during a four-month span in 2012, Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Laurent Robinson acknowledged to NFL Network's Andrea Kremer that his NFL future is cloudy.
Still experiencing symptoms, Robinson remains sensitive to light and cannot be around his crying infant daughter because of the "throbbing" headaches. The aftereffects have been severe enough that Robinson won't go to the grocery store or even take out the trash during daylight hours.
Robinson concedes that it was the "wrong decision" to keep coming back last season after the first couple of concussions, but he's still turning to hyperbaric-chamber sessions and resistance flexibility training in an effort to alleviate the symptoms and continue his football career.
It's been two and a half months since Robinson last played an NFL game and it's an ominous sign that his life is still adversely affected by the concussion symptoms.
"The players know when they sign up for this in the NFL that they're susceptible to getting injuries," Robinson said. "I don't know if it's worth it or not. I've been playing for six years and I want to continue to play, but I still want to live until I'm 80, 90 years old."
