Manny Lawson has a vivid recollection of his most serious concussion.
That’s only because it was captured on film. What he recalls is seeing it later on videotape, and being stunned by the image. It’s the most terrifying movie he’s ever seen, his personal “Halloween.”
Lawson, the Bills veteran linebacker, was with the Niners at the time. As he was making a tackle, another player’s leg crashed into his helmet. Six plays later, he walked off the field and told someone, “I don’t remember anything that just happened.”
