    Dr. Mike McCoy says not to worry about King Dunlap’s lengthy history of concussions
    The San Diego Chargers Head Coach has assured everyone that King Dunlap’s very serious head injury isn’t very serious at all. Okay, then.

    King Dunlap, who has been concussed during NFL games at least four times in the last four seasons. In fact, Dunlap has missed 15 of 51 possible regular-season appearance since originally signing with the San Diego Chargers in 2013, and I believe all or most of those were due to concussions or concussion-related symptoms.

    Dunlap missed Sunday’s game against the Colts with an “illness” and he missed practice again today with migraines (probably what kept him out on Sunday as well). Migraines are a symptom of post-concussion syndrome, but not to worry everybody....

    Mike McCoy, who is on the record as saying that he’s not a doctor when asked about injured players that he doesn’t want to talk about, assured everyone today that he is able to diagnose Dunlap’s condition.

    Chargers LT King Dunlap is being treated for migraines. "This is not linked to concussions," coach Mike McCoy said.

    Thanks, doctor.

    Honestly, though, there is no way for McCoy to know that. Hell, there’s not even a way for Dunlap to know whether or not these serious migraines are a result of past concussions (some of which have caused Dunlap to admittedly forget entire games). However, Mike McCoy is pretty sure he can say whatever he wants and get away with it.

    Get better, Dunlap. Football is only a game. The health of your brain is far more important.

    I love the hypocrisy.

    Sunday/Monday - "I am not a doctor"

    Tuesday - "The migraines are not related to concussions"

    Ok.

    We can't stand his stupidity even with limited exposure. Imagine what it would be like to work under someone like that on a daily basis. :eek:

    If McCoy actually believes that this has nothing to do with his concussions, he's a GIANT fool.

    If McCoy realizes that it must have a lot to do with concussions but thinks he can fool the public by saying it doesn't, he's an even bigger fool.

    Conclusion: McCoy is an idiot and he should shut up about everything forever. Also-- he's a scumbag. He absolutely REFUSES to comment on injuries 99.99% of the time, but he's happy to lie through his teeth that this isn't a concussion issue because that would be a bad look for the team. So apparently his principled stand isn't all that important when he wants to deflect any bad press.

    On Dunlap, this is just too bad. The guy really needs to hang it up, and I think he will. It ain't worth his future mental health. I feel for him.

    Not even worth my time to comment on McTurtles comments other than to say ......

    Sooooooooooo predictably WRONG as per usual, this guy is getting more embarrassing as the days roll by.

    Only a matter of time now until both Dunlap and Flowers are retired due to the new concussion protocals, so there goes another couple of starters before we hit the halfway mark of the year, no surprise at all really.

    It's actually not McCoy's call if Flowers or Dunlap plays. We all know, they both must be cleared by doctors if they're in the protocol. But, this just shows you how this organization downplays concussions. It's a scary thing, and between Norv Turner and his staff and now Mike McCoy and his staff - not valuing your players lives in order to save your *** on Sundays is a sad, sad thing.

    I just remember Dielman and that concussion he suffered in New York a couple years back and then the seizures he suffered on the flight back. Very unfortunate situation.

    Hey he may be going off what the medical staff tells him. C'mon have we seen anything from these guys that would make us think they know what portion of the body the migraine affects?

    I'm glad for Dunlap that he got paid before it came to this. He will probably have his share of expenses in the future.

    Chargers LT King Dunlap dealing with migraines
    Michael Gehlken

    What had been a curious situation regarding
    King Dunlap’s health, one with few specifics made public during a recent fluctuation in on-field participation, seemed to grow more concerning Wednesday when the Chargers returned to practice.


    Dozens of players were on the field for a session held in shorts and shells. Their left tackle was not. And afterward, coach Mike McCoy said that Dunlap is “being treated for migraines.”

    Alarm bells naturally sounded; Dunlap has an unfortunate history with concussions. Seconds later, McCoy elaborated.

    “This is not linked to concussions,” he said. “It’s migraines.”

    Concussion Symptoms: How Do I Know If I Have a Concussion?
    Most often, it’s athletes that are considered most prone to concussions, a brain injury that is either caused when the head suffers a severe blow or when the body is shaken and the brain is jostled as a result.

    However, we are all at risk for concussions whether we play sports regularly or not. Concussions are also the common injury due to car accidents, falls, fights, or passing out and hitting the head.

    In rare cases, concussions can cause brain injury, particularly with repeated instances. Here are the ten most common symptoms of a concussion…

    1. Headaches
    Due to the fact that the majority of concussions are caused by a direct blow to the head, severe headache can occur comparable to a nasty migraine headache that comes in ebbs and flows with sensitivity to light and sound.

    Don't like to hear this news re King. He wasn't particularly heralded when he arrived but our line seems to work well/better when he is in there. Would love to see him back in the Bolts but his long term health must come first.

    Not going to speculate any further as to the basis for what Milkdud said, at best it seems foolish. I sincerely hope the team aren't forcing KIng into anything or covering up something more serious.
