Cowboys | Aikman praises league's new testing for concussions

Tue, 05 Jun 2007 22:39:26 -0700

The Associated Press reports former Dallas Cowboys QB Troy Aikman says he has not symptoms from the 10 concussions he suffered during his Hall of Fame career. He does get migraine headaches, but he says he's had them all his life and that they're not related to football. Aikman said, "I think people got the impression that [former NFL QB] Steve Young and I were forced out by concussions. For me, it was more my back." Aikman added, "I've had no problems since. From my perspective, I think I got off relatively lightly. I think defensive players are far more at risk than quarterbacks -- they get hit on every play and may often have concussions they don't know about." Aikman praised the league for its recent decision to run baseline tests on all players in training camp so the NFL can later determine if their brains have been damaged from hits to the head. "The fact that doctors will now have a record of how much change there has been is a huge step forward," Aikman said.

Giants | Aikman says Manning needs work with his top receivers

Wed, 12 Jul 2006 05:24:06 -0700

Paul Schwartz, of the New York Post, reports Hall of Fame QB Troy Aikman said New York Giants QB Eli Manning needs more offseason work with his top receivers, WRs Plaxico Burress and Sinorice Moss and TE Jeremy Shockey. "I think it's unfortunate that here he is, as a quarterback going into his third season, and he's not given the opportunity to throw to his top three wide receivers throughout the offseason," Aikman said on a conference call. "I think that's a real mistake, for Jeremy Shockey, Plaxico Burress and Sinorice Moss not to be there with Eli Manning, getting some timing down. I don't think you can get that in just a minicamp, I don't think you can get it in four weeks of training camp." Aikman missed the mark with Moss because Moss, a rookie receiver from the University of Miami, did work out at Giants Stadium and attended all his required sessions. Overall Aikman feels Manning's development is going fine.
