    ISAAC BRUCE GOT "DAZED," KEPT PLAYING by Michael David Smith

    The NFL supposedly made proper treatment for players who suffer concussions on the field one of its highest priorities this offseason. But, every week, we see examples of players going back on the field with head injuries.

    The latest example comes from Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who reports that Rams WR Isaac Bruce absorbed a blow to the head in the second quarter of Sunday's game.

    Thomas quotes Rams coach Scott Linehan as saying that Bruce was "a little dazed" after the hit. But Bruce still returned to the game.

    "We are being very conservative with those kinds of things," Linehan said afterward. "We took him in and did several tests at halftime, and he was okay, so he was cleared for some play in the second half."

    The medical staff may have cleared Bruce to play, and it may have been correct to do so. But no matter how well NFL coaches have learned to parrot the company line on concussions, putting a player back into the game after he gets "dazed" from a blow to the head isn't "being very conservative."
