Morey’s brain and concussions

Posted by Darren Urban on September 14, 2009 – 2:15 pm

Sean Morey, the Cardinals’ Pro Bowl special teamer, is one of three active players — along with Baltimore center Matt Birk and Seahawks linebacker Lofa Tatupu — who have agreed to donate their brains to science, in part to help research toward brain injuries and concussions and in part to raise awareness with the problem while all three are still playing. I’ll have a lot more tomorrow after a bunch of us talked to Morey about it today, but safe to say it is an important issue for Morey, who has been working with the NFL Players Association to try and improve everyone’s knowledge on the subject. Already 40 retired NFL players have agreed to allow their brains to be studied. Morey is a smart guy — an Ivy Leaguer who went to Brown, while Birk attended Harvard and Tatupu USC — who has been working hard on this subject since the offseason began. He acknowledges he probably has had more concussions than he’d care to admit.
