Another set of eyes to spot concussions

Posted by hobsonschoice1 on December 23, 2011 – 11:02 am

The Bengals have tapped a familiar face to help monitor potential concussions in the wake of a new NFL mandate.

Mike Gordon, head trainer at Cincinnati’s St. Xavier High School and a former Bengals intern, is going to be in the press box with the NFL observer during games. Gordon will be wired into the bench via phone as he offers Bengals trainer Paul Sparling an extra set of eyes in the effort to spot players suffering from head injuries.

Gordon interned with the club in 2001 and 2003 and was a finalist for an assistant trainer’s job with the club in 2009.
