An injured brain was not viewed in the same sense as an injured leg was.
It's a combination of the two. They're being recognized, diagnosed and treated better than ever before, but due to the increased speed, strength and physicality of the players I think they're occurring with greater frequency.
I don't worry about McIlrath. It's somewhat of a concern, I guess, but that's the gamble you take when you draft a guy like him.
It's just pain.
