Given his concussion history, it must have been a scary moment for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi when he suffered a head injury during Friday's preseason game against the Detroit Lions. He was forced to leave the field of play and, after the game, Browns coach Pat Shurmur confirmed that Massaquoi had suffered a concussion, his third in three seasons.
In an odd twist, though, Massaquoi took to Twitter on Friday night to deny that he had suffered any ill effects from the hit.
No! Precautionary! Cant wait to get back to work!— Mohamed Massaquoi (@MoMass11) August 11, 2012
@jmccurry08: @momass11 no concussion? congrats on the win #GoBrownies
It's hard to fault Massaquoi for wanting to get back on the field, but the team will obviously need to monitor his condition very carefully over the next few days and weeks. It's unclear at the moment if he'll miss any additional time.
