How seriously are concussions taken in today's NFL? How seriously should they be taken? We asked clinical neuropsychologist and former member of the San Diego Chargers' medical staff Katie Levisay how she thinks the NFL and Broncos should be handling the concussions on Wes Welker.

There are no quick or easy answers as the neurological medical field scrambles to bring diagnostic efforts up to par with long-term symptoms of concussions, but Levisay, who believes Welker should sit out the rest of the 2013 season, lends insights that were valuable and thought-provoking.

Levisay also happens to be a huge Broncos fan, so we talked with her throughout the episode about the Broncos' victory over the Titans in Week 14, Denver's upcoming Thursday Night Game against the Chargers, and we made fun of Rob Gronkowski a lot.
