Yesterday afternoon former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski raised some eyebrows when he said that he would allow his child play football despite having suffered 20 concussions during his NFL career because he would teach him that all injuries are “fixable” including head injuries.
“I would let my son play football, but first off I would educate him on the game. Educate him on what I went through. I truly believe any injury that you receive is fixable. I went through it. I had nine surgeries. Probably had like 20 concussions in my life, like no lie. I remember five, like blackout ones.”
Gronk was immediately blasted by experts in the field who disagreed with him saying that severe head injuries are fixable.
Gronk went on to double down by saying that he “fixed” his CTE.
Twitter quickly fired back at Gronk’s claims.
