Calvin Johnson says it’s common for players to hide concussions from coaches

Former Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson said he hid concussions from team doctors during his nine-year NFL career and that it is a common practice in the league, according to the Detroit Free Press. “Guys get concussions, they don’t tell the coaches,” Johnson said on Saturday, according to the Free Press. Johnson's assertion follows comments made by Gisele Bundchen, the wife of Tom Brady, who last week said on CBS This Morning that Brady has suffered concussions during his career and sustained an undisclosed concussion last season.
