Brian Dawkins Currently Not Worried About Health Effects From Playing Football


Watching Brian Dawkins on television is by no means easy on the eyes. It’s hard seeing him in a cushioned seat after all of these years as one of the hardest hitting safeties on the field. It will definitely take some getting used to.

Dawkins went on the Cover Two podcast with Steve Wyche and Jason Smith last week to discuss his concerns (or lack thereof) surrounding his health issues after football. Dawkins says that he isn’t worried about them despite missing multiple games last season with a neck injury.

“Concerns?  I have some concerns, but worry?  No,” Dawkins said on the Cover Two podcast with Steve Wyche and Jason Smith.  ”I don’t worry about that.  Down the road at some point, later on in life, if I do have to deal with some things at that time, then I have to deal with them.  As of right now, I’m going to continue to enjoy life, continue to have a great time with my family and help those who I can help, ministry-wise, along the way.”

I played this game a certain way,” Dawkins said.  ”I played it with a passion, with fervor.  I played with an aggression.  I would not change those things.  The only thing I would change is the helmet I wore.  Technology is better.” – Pro Football Talk
