07:08 AM ET 08.21 | These days, concussions are a serious business in the NFL, and they're not taken lightly. Carlos Dunlap knew that. So, he understands why his extended sedentary state on the sidelines this preseason occurred. That doesn't mean he likes it. Dunlap suffered a concussion July 31 and eased back into individual work Monday, it was the first physical activity he's been allowed since enduring the injury. "It's frustrating," Dunlap said. "Physically I feel I can still run, lift weights, whatever. But it's not in my best interests right now. It's like a mind game now." Not to mention a game of deja vu. The fourth-year pro is yet to manage a preseason without missing games. Of the 15 preseason games since being drafted in 2010, Dunlap only participated in four.

Sounds like his mind is playing a mind game with his mind.

Don't worry Carlo's you will be well rested for when the games count......then other people will be frustrated because they can not slow you down.

Well like Alex Karras used to say 'don't call him 'till the real games start'

Frustrating, perhaps, but it sounds like he's still been able to go during the regular season since he was drafted. Looks like he signed a new contract this year.

At first I thought they were talking King Dunlap, I know he's been in the league a similar amount of time and also has missed some time due to injury.

Strange, I thought everybody wanted out of the pre-season.
