‘This Is Going To Be Serious’: Doctors Respond To Hit On Steelers Quarterback Mason Rudolph

CBS Pittsburgh affiliate KDKA reports on the recent concussion suffered by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph. 

KDKA interviews Emerald Lin, MD, physiatrist at HSS, who has not evaluated Rudolph, but watched the hit and observed how it came from his blind side. "Certainly those are more dangerous because the body isn't ready to absorb the forces of the hit."

"The big symptoms that we see are headaches, fogginess, confusion, dizziness, trouble with memory," says Dr. Lin who explains that typically those get better within three days.
