Seahawks_Sherman_2013Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says he stayed on the field after the only concussion of his NFL career, and hes glad he did.

Sherman wrote in a guest column at TheMMQB.com that in his first NFL start, against the Bengals in Week Eight of the 2011 season, he suffered a concussion on the seventh play of the game. But Sherman kept playing, played well, and established himself as one of the leagues best young cornerbacks.

I couldnt see, Sherman writes about the effects of the concussion. The concussion blurred my vision and I played the next two quarters half-blind, but there was no way I was coming off the field with so much at stake. It paid off: Just as my head was clearing, Andy Dalton lobbed one up to rookie A.J. Green and I came down with my first career interception.
