Former QB Favre: I was concussed during '09 NFC title game

Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre told reporters during a conference call Wednesday that he played through a concussion during the 2009 NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints when he was with the Minnesota Vikings. The call took place ahead of Favre's documentary "Shocked: A Hidden Factor in the Sports Concussion Crisis," which is set to air at 6:30 p.m. ET Thursday on Stadium Network. "A concussion doesn't necessarily have to be knocked out cold and removed from a game, although the new protocol is in place to remove you from a game even if you're not walking sideways or your arm goes stiff or whatever," Favre said.
