concussion didn’t violate protocol The New England Patriots did not only get defeated during their week two contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars Tom Brady Jersey Salute to Service , they also lost two of their defensive starters along the way: defensive edge Trey Flowers and strong safety Patrick Chung both left the game because of concussions. While the protocol was correctly applied in Flowers’ case there were some concerns when it comes to how Chung was treated.After a play in the second quarter, the veteran was slow to get up and immediately removed from the game. After only one play on the sidelines, however, he returned to the action – only to be shut down for good during halftime. This procedure raised questions at the time and ultimately led to an investigation by the NFL and the NFL Players Association. Today, the results were announced: no wrongdoing was found.According to a joint statement, the league and the players union conducted interviews with “relevant Patriots personnel, the game official involved, the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant (UNC) and the booth ATC spotter.” The interviews established that none of the persons in question felt the need to initiate the concussion protocol right after Chung left the game for the first time.However Authentic Dwayne Allen Jersey , the Patriots’ coaching staff apparently “observed behavior that warranted a sideline review” after the first-time team captain had entered the contest again. This then led to him being placed in the concussion protocol, being removed from the contest a second time, and after a reevaluation being declared out. According to the press release by the NFL and NFLPA, the 31-year old showed delayed concussion symptoms.Chung, who also missed last week’s game against the Detroit Lions because of the concussion, returned to practice this week but is still a limited participant.FanPulse: How Patriots and Jaguars fans view Sunday’s game Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Patriots fans Limited Malcolm Mitchell Jersey , sign up HERE to join FanPulse.How confident are you in the direction of the team? Last week: 90 percent confidenceThe overall confidence in the Patriots has dropped a few percentage points, but it’s pretty darn close to what it was last week. The drops make sense, too- Jeremy Hill is out of the year and Chris Hogan didn’t bother to show up against the Texans, while the defense really struggled against the run.A win against the Jaguars- a convincing one- should help confidence in the team.Will the Patriots win or lose in Week 2?Odds: Patriots are 1.5-point favoritesPats Pulpit FanPulse: Patriots by 6Big Cat Country FanPulse: Jaguars by 3This is a pretty big split of 9 points and I think it’s interesting that each team is 4.5-points away from the betting line. Does that mean homerism is worth 4.5-points to Vegas? Or is this insight into how much confidence fans have in their teams? What do you think?Other than QB, what is most valuable to an NFL offense? Trent Brown was outstanding for the Patriots in his first game and hopefully he can continue to play at a high level. He was the biggest question mark for the offensive line heading into this year (Marcus Cannon’s injury aside) and he gave a strong answer.Brown held his own against Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus and won’t get a breather against the Jaguars with Yannick Ngakoue and Calais Campbell. Best of luck, Trent!
