Dear T.J. Lang: We understand if you hang up your cleats and leave the Detroit Lions

Dear T.J. Lang,

On Sunday, against the Dallas Cowboys, on what seemed like any normal NFL play, you were part of a collision that caused you, a strong professional athlete, to drop to your knees in pain. At first, there was speculation that it could be your back flaring up again but we later learned it was a “brain-injury” and you were being placed in concussion protocol.

Unfortunately, this is not your first go-around with injuries to your brain. In fact, according to you, this is at least the fifth “brain injury” you have suffered and you have always come back as soon as you could to help your teammates on the field.

This is not a letter to tell you what to do or to give you advice. It is simply a letter to let you know that we, your fans (Lions and Packers), have you in our thoughts and prayers and we would understand 100% if you decide to hang up your cleats.

Back in a 2016 interview, you made a comment that could not be truer than it is right at this moment.

“Now, it’s not just me anymore. Now, I’ve got people who are really depending on me.” You said.

Of course, you were referring to your wife, Laura, and your beautiful children.
