Aaron Curry returns after missing ten days due to a concussion

Aaron Curry sustained a concussion on July 31. He has now returned to practice, nearly a week and a half later. It’s not clear whether that speaks to the severity of the concussion, caution exhibited by the Seahawks coaching staff or evidence that the NFL is backing up their claim to better protect the brains of their athletes.

I am not sure a player can be concussion prone, but Curry is a big, fast player that charges like a bull and pops like a super nova. Brain trauma is always at risk for big hitters, and Curry has the potential to be among the biggest.

It’s good to see Curry back. He has a lot of work to do to fulfill his immense potential. Hopefully that work is does not endanger his health.
