It sure sounds from an interview that Jaguars receiver Laurent Robinson and his wife, Kat, did recently with NFL Network correspondent Andrea Kremer at their Jacksonville home that he's still having serious obstacles in his recovery from four concussions suffered last season. And he might call it quits at the first sign of the problem surfacing again.
"I said to him, 'One more concussion, and you need to be done [playing],' " Kat told Kremer. While Kat said she understood Laurent's desire to keep playing, she's worried about her husband having dementia and Alzheimer's down the road.
Laurent, who was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 21 and has four years remaining on a $32 million contract, says he continues to suffer from severe headaches. It's so bad that he prefers not to go out in daylight. He told Kremer he also distances himself from his infant daughter if she's making noise. "I want to continue to play [football], but I still want to live until 80 or 90 years old," Laurent told Kremer.
If Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley watched that interview, they should have serious concern on how much Robinson can be counted on for the 2013 season.
Hopefully, Robinson can return to full health, but at this point, we are not counting on Robinson making much of a fantasy impact in 2013.
