11:42 AM ET 08.09 | There is some scary news coming out of the LSU Tigers football program that surrounds starting guard Josh Williford. According to reports, Williford suffered a concussion during the team's Thursday morning practice. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound good and could be career-ending. Reports stated Williford was unconscious for about five minutes. Williford missed the final seven games for the Tigers just a season ago, so the news that he suffered yet another serious concussion is not what he or the program wants to hear.

I feel bad for the guy, but, better to hang it up than get your brains scrambled.

Hope he's ok. I'm definitely not a LoSUr fan, but I hate to see a kid have his dream taken like this.

No fan of LSU, But hate to hear of a young man???s career being ended. Batter to be safe than sorry though, concussions are nothing to be taken lightly.

First of all, I thought that new helmet technology was supposed to help lower the rate of concussions. There seem to be more than ever before in both the college and NFL, especially affecting running backs, receivers and quarterbacks. Second, we (seem to) know that concussions and other blows to the head affect players later in life. Should *any* serious concussion be declared career-ending and then enforced by the NFL or even the NCAA?
