Suggs takes shot at NFL over concussions

October, 9, 2013
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs took another shot at the NFL. This time, he questioned the league's motives on the issue of concussions.

A reporter asked Suggs about PBS Frontline's "League of Denial," a documentary on the NFL's concussion crisis.

"Like I said, I’m just paranoid," Suggs said Wednesday. "I think [the study of concussions is] very important. From their [the league's] standpoint, I think they’re looking to covering their own [butt] more than player safety."

This is the second time that Suggs has taken the NFL to task this year. On ESPN's "E:60," Suggs accused NFL commissioner Roger Goodell of having a role in the Super Bowl blackout and showing favoritism toward the Denver Broncos in the AFC divisional playoff game.
