As it has been reported that running back Jamal Lewis may start a new life away from football after being placed on injured reserve Wednesday, the Cleveland Browns safety Brodney Pool may also face the same future.
A starter at his position and a five-year veteran, Pool suffered at least his fourth known concussion during the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was also placed on injured reserve. Having started 10 games this season and 49 in Browns jersey since the Browns selected him in the second round of the 2005 draft out of Oklahoma, Pool really needs to make a decision on his NFL career after sustaining so many concussions.
The Browns have already placed Pro Bowl nose tackle Shaun Rogers and inside linebackers D'Qwell Jackson and Eric Barton on injured reserve. To lose both Lewis and Pool for the season just made the team’s future of this season even blacker.
