Case Keenum Suffers Head Injury, Stays In Game, Gives Up Game-Losing Fumble

Just a few minutes after Joe Flacco tore his ACL, the quarterback opposite him suffered a nasty injury of his own. Case Keenum got rocked here yet nobody made any moves to remove him from the game. Look at his teammate pick him up like he’s a bag of flour.


Two plays later, Keenum fumbled the game away, allowing the Ravens to kick a long field goal to win the game by three. This is a clear cut example of where the NFL’s concussion policy falls short. A head injury spotter technically has the power to stop the game and get someone like Keenum checked out, but in such a tight situation, removing him from the game would cause quite the shitstorm. That said, look at what leaving him in did.
