Next, it was off to Impact testing where you test the brain to get a baseline score for future occurrences with head trauma, such as concussions. After the 25-minute test, we then moved to another area within Lucas Oil where all 32 teams had medical doctors and trainers to test each player. An extremely long and tedious process, it took nearly four-and-a-half hours to complete.
Each team's doctor and/or trainer would contort and twist your body and joints in every way imaginable looking for areas of pain or question. They would also ask you a series of questions relating to your medical history. It really is a great feeling to know that part of the combine is over.
Fortunately today I was able to get a little nap in to gain some sleep that I missed from the night before, then back to dinner and a night full of interviews. Tonight's interviews were much more formal as more QB coaches were in town. I had the great fortune to meet with many great coaches. Some of those were Jim Zorn (Redskins), Clyde Christensen (Colts), Jeremy Bates (Bears), Jim Caldwell (previous Colts head coach and now Baltimore QB coach), and many other teams along the way. Miami, San Diego, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Seattle, Jacksonville, Minnesota, Green Bay, Oakland, Denver…just to name a few.
All in all another great day, more testing slated for tomorrow! Can't wait!
