Jimmy Clausen Diagnosed With Concussion After Taking Brutal Shot To Head

Late in yesterday's loss to the Detroit Lions, Bears quarterback Jimmy Clausen nearly got his damn head taken off by Ziggy Ansah at the end of a short scramble. Clausen stayed in to finish the drive, the Bears' last of the game, and now it's being reported that he experienced "delayed symptoms" of a concussion after the game:


Delayed concussion symptoms are in fact a real thing, so it's not impossible to believe that Clausen was fine after the hit and capable of staying in the game, but it was still probably a less-than-great idea to leave him in for those last few plays.

Clausen's also been ruled out for Week 17, and you know what that means...


The Bears are having the weirdest season.
