During Joe Burrow's weekly podcast The Volume with Colin Cowherd, the former LSU quarterback revealed that he has played through concussions and blacked out during multiple games where he would forget what happened. Per BarstoolSports:
quote:

"I've never had any lasting effects from a concussion. I've been hit and forgot the rest of the game before. That's happened a couple of times, but I've never had one where I have headaches for like a week, and I have symptoms of concussion after the game. Like I said, I've had some where I don't remember the second half, or I don't remember the entire game, or I know that I got a little dizzy at one point, but nothing long-lasting.

"[...] You can make all the rules you want to make the game as safe as you possibly can, but [...] you have 300-pound men running 20 miles an hour trying to take your head off while you're standing still trying to ignore it and find receivers that are open. [...] Part of what we signed up for. You're gonna have head injuries. You're gonna tear your ACL. You're gonna break your arm. That's the game that we play, that's the life that we live and we get paid handsomely for it. I think going into every game, we know what we're getting ourselves into."

Played three years in High School, some at tOSU, some and then a full year at LSU.
Then came Bengals and (gag) 61 sacks his first year. 61!

The sacks column in his wiki may be dictated by the Players' association.

According to the SteveO on JackAss, concussions don’t matter before you’re 50. Joe’s got many years before they start mattering. Pretty sure SteveO is a neurologist in real life.

SteveO is wrong - from a Behavioral Neurologist

I got hit with a pool stick in a bar fight once and saw double for 2 weeks. After some rehabilitation and constant practice I'm glad to say that shortly there after I was able to again start lifting those beers to my lips and have now recovered fully.

He is usually pretty wise about what he says. I don't know if he should have said all that.

He was obviously concussed at the time of offering those words.

That’s why these guys get paid millions upon millions of dollars and retire when they are 30 years old. That’s the deal in their chosen profession.

All the money and fame in the world don't mean shite when you got CTE at age 40. I love Joe and I'm grateful for his time at LSU but he should think about walking away right now.

The real lovers are the ones so obsessed with their political ideology that it dominates literally every facet of their lives.
