Clinton Portis played nine seasons in the NFL. Portis is now claiming that he played through many concussions. “The truth is I had a lot of concussions,” Portis said. “It was just the way things were at the time. I’d get hit hard and be woozy. I’d be dizzy. I’d take a play off and then go back in. Sometimes when I went back into the game, I still couldn’t see straight. This happened all the time. Sometimes once or twice a game.” Portis even believes that he suffered more than 10 concussions over the course of his career. Portis said he lost track of the number because of the large amount. Luckily, he is still in good health to this very day. “I have a few aches and pains, nothing major. None of the, ‘I can’t stand up or walk’ stuff. I got away from the game at the perfect time. To be 31 and retired and spending time with my kids, I love it.” Need NFL Tickets? The post Clinton Portis says he played through concussions “all the time” appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
