05:26 PM ET 12.23 | The NFL takes concussions seriously, so they will not be happy to hear the comments that were made by Detroit Lions tight end Dorin Dickerson following the team's loss to the New York Giants in Week 16. When speaking to the media after the game, Dickerson admitted that he suffered a concussion before the game but that he never reported it to the team's doctors. Dickerson said that he "just got knocked out" early in the fourth quarter and he didn't mention the concussion until overtime.

Players do it all the time. Don't expect them to report it until it's too late.

It's up to the coaches & medical staff to pull the guy off the field if he appears to have suffered a concussion.

He'll still sue the NFL for it.
