After watching getting knocked out of last week’s game against the Ravens, Cleveland Browns kick returner Josh Cribbs says his family doesn’t want him playing football anymore.
“Everyone was calling and couldn’t stop crying,” said Cribbs, per the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, who has two young children. “My brother, who’s the reason why I’m playing football, even he wants me to stop.”
“They’re saying, ‘I know you love the game but we don’t want you to play anymore,’” he said of his own family. “They’re like, ‘Family’s more important. You’ve got so many years of your life. You’ve showed enough good football.’”
Cribbs says he feels great and is ready for this week’s game.
“I feel great,” said Cribbs, who was limited in practice. “I’ve had no symptoms and I’m ready to play [Sunday] against the Giants. I’m not scared of taking another hit.”
