Jets | Former WR Chrebet still suffering from concussions

Citing an interview with the Bergen Record, Stan Olson, of the Charlotte Observer, reports former New York Jets WR Wayne Chrebet, who retired after the 2005 season due to suffering 13 concussions during his football career, is still bothered by post-concussion symptoms. "Healthwise ... everything except for my head is fine," Chrebet said. "I still have a lot of struggles. It still gets gradually worse at times. I just try to talk to as many people as possible, talk through it with doctors about the long-term future." Some of the symptoms Chrebet is hampered with include headaches, lethargy and sensitivity to light and sound. "I still don't want to scare people, but I'm more concerned," he said. "Hopefully in the near future, these things subside and no one needs to know about them because they're going away."
