Pam Oliver admints she suffered a concussion after hit

When FOX Sports sideline reporter Pam Oliver was hit by an errant pass a couple of weeks ago, the video went viral. Oliver was shocked, but stayed on the sidelines and continued to report. Now, she admits she suffered a concussion

According to the New York Daily News, Oliver said she left the stadium that night and developed a headache that worsened. The  next day a doctor diagnosed her as having a concussion. She spoke about how she suffered:

“I slept for hours on end. The minute you wake up you’re reminded. Your head is pounding. I really could not take light — the light from the TV, the accent lighting. The sun was completely my enemy. My blinds were drawn. It was miserable. … I worried about my memory, but after five days things began clearing up.”
Oliver has healed and you can expect to see her on the sidelines reporting Thursday night for the NFL season opener of the Ravens against the Broncos. This time, I'm sure she'll be more careful.
“When I’m back on the sidelines, I’ll do what I always do: Stay a bit behind the line of scrimmage. And keep my head on a swivel.”
Good idea Pam, but just for safety you might want to look over your should a little more often. In a totally unrelated story, the player who threw the football, Indianapolis Colts reserve Chandler Harnish, did not make the team and is now a free agent. Your Jersey Girlfriend, ~Angela Davis
