Hall of Famer Andre Reed: I’m feeling the effects of concussions
Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Andre Reed told SI Now’s Maggie Gray that he feels the effects of head trauma sustained during his football career.
“I have mood swings,” said Reed, who played for the Buffalo Bills from 1985–1999. “Maybe not to the severity that [Thurman Thomas] might have them.”
Thomas, Reed’s teammate and a Hall of Fame running back, recently opened up publicly about the concussion-related issues he has experienced since his retirement.
“I’ve known Thurman for years and Thurman took a lot of hits. I took a lot of hits,” Reed said. “A guy doesn’t come out and say that just to be saying it because someone else said it. It’s probably affecting him. There’s no doubt about it.”
