Concussion expert irate when Texans’ QB returns after hard hit

Hard hits are not unusual in the NFL, but the one Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage took Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers was particularly scary. When Savage returned to the game moments later, it drew an angry response from the founding CEO of Concussion Legacy Foundation on Twitter.

Savage was hit by 49ers defensive end Elvis Dumervil as he threw an incomplete pass on third down, ESPN reported. The quarterback had trouble getting up and his hands were shaking.

After being evaluated by the Texans’ medical staff, Savage returned to the game three minutes later and threw two incomplete passes before being replaced by T.J. Yates with two minutes left in the half.

Chris Nowinski, a former professional wrestler with the WWE and author of “Head Games: Football’s Concussion Crisis,” tweeted that he was “disgusted” by Savage’s return to action.

“I would not let my worst enemy go through the 2017 #NFL sideline concussion protocol,” tweeted Nowinski, who is co-director of Boston University’s Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy.

After taking the hit, Savage spoke with the Texans’ medical staff, ESPN reported. Before the Texans' next offensive series, a team official held Savage's jersey and arm as he tried to return to the field. Savage argued with the team official; after coming off the field a second time, Savage was escorted to the locker room by the team's trainer.

The Texans ruled Savage out with a concussion, ESPN reported.

Let it snow: Bills players, fans brave wintry conditions in Buffalo

Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White did his best to stay warm before Sunday’s game in western New York. 

>> Read more trending news

It wasn’t working.

The Bills were hosting the Indianapolis Colts at New Era Field, and players, coaches and fans were exposed to a strong snowstorm.

During warm-ups Sunday, White did his best to avoid becoming frozen. He danced and moved to stay warm. As a native of Shreveport, Louisiana, it is unlikely that White has ever seen conditions like this: temperatures below 30 degrees when the game began at 1 p.m., winds out of the west at 18 mph, a wind chill that made the temperature feel like 16 degrees, and visibility of less than a third of a mile.

The players weren’t the only ones cold. Fans braved the chilly weather to cheer for the Bills.

And you can’t say the fans in Buffalo don’t have a sense of humor.

>> Read more trending news

According to the department's Facebook page, it received a call around 4 a.m. Sunday about a car that drove onto and crashed through Hunts Pond.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found a car in the water -- with a person still in it.

The driver was able to escape the vehicle and was sitting on the roof.

The car was about 10 feet from shore, and was sinking into an estimated 8 to 10 feet of water.

Police officers and firefighters were waiting for the proper equipment to help pull the man from the water, but quickly realized they wouldn't have enough time.

Instead, they threw a rope to the man and had him tie it around himself. 

And thanks to the help of a few officers, firefighters, and a public works crewman, they pulled the man out of the water safely -- unhurt.

After saving the man, police were also able to pull the vehicle out of the water.

Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby 'can't vote' for Roy Moore

Sen. Richard Shelby prefers a write-in candidate for Tuesday’s special election in Alabama instead of Republican candidate Roy Moore, CNN reported.

“I'd rather see the Republican win, but I'd rather see a Republican write-in,” Shelby told CNN on Sunday. “I couldn't vote for Roy Moore. I didn't vote for Roy Moore.”

Moore has denied accusations of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s, CNN reported. He and Democratic candidate Doug Jones are in a virtual dead heat for the seat that was vacated when Jeff Sessions became Attorney General in President Donald Trump’s cabinet.

Shelby, a Republican, said he has no reason to doubt the women who have made the accusations and added that where there is “a lot of smoke, there's got to be some fire somewhere."

“(W)e call it a tipping point,” Shelby said. “I think, so many accusations, so many cuts, so many drip, drip, drip -- when it got to the 14-year-old’s story, that was enough for me. I said I can't vote for Roy Moore.”
