Concerned about Concussions?

I'm pretty sure the concussion I got while riding a bike as a kid could've been prevented if I'd been wearing a helmet.  Fortunately, the concussion wasn't severe, and I don't TOUCH my mountain bike today without putting the helmet on first. 

But I was pretty surprised by one of the facts you hear in Thursday's show:  that once you have had a concussion, doctors say another is more likely.  Does this make you more concerned about these injuries?  I know a lot of you football players have taken a few (or many) hits, and that's part of the game.  But did seeing Thursday's report make you any more likely to take time to heal afterward, or are you still going to hit the field ASAP?
