Bill O'Brien: Tom Savage initially cleared from concussion, then reevaluated

Bill O'Brien: Tom Savage initially cleared from concussion, then reevaluated”

Replays showed Savage looking dazed after his head hit the ground with both of his arms shaking and lifted upward.

Following the game, Texans coach Bill O'Brien was questioned on why Savage was allowed by return to the game after sustaining the hit.

After Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers, O'Brien said that Savage was checked by a doctor on the sidelines before being cleared to return to the field on the next possession. "All there are are tablets", O'Brien said. He was pulled from the game shortly thereafter and placed in concussion protocol.

The NFL and the NFL Players Association announced their joint investigation into the incident on Monday. He shared what he was told after the second evaluation. "Whatever they see and the testing that they do they try to make the best decision with the player and they weren't satisfied with the results of the second test so they chose to pull him, and that's when he went into the locker room".

"At no point in time is there anything more important to me than the safety of our players", he said. "I love our players, and I care about them".

"Obviously, the spotter wanted him evaluated", O'Brien stated. "But he also has the foot quickness and agility to get out of there and extend some plays".

T.J. Yates threw for 175 yards and two touchdowns after Tom Savage left with a brain injury in the second quarter. Yates took over against the 49ers after Savage was injured for his first game action since 2015.

On Monday, George Atallah, the assistant executive director of external affairs at the NFLPA, tweeted, "we are initiating a full review of the Tom Savage concussion from yesterday's game". "I really do", he said.
