T.J. Hockenson not planning to stop hurdling despite concussion

If you expected Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson to alter the way he plays the game after suffering a concussion in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs, then you don’t know the rookie all that well.

In that game, Hockenson attempted to hurdle Chiefs linebacker Damien Wilson, but the defender got a piece of Hockenson, causing the Lions tight end to lose his balance midair and come down hard on his shoulder and head. He laid motionless for several moments and was carted off before being diagnosed with a concussion.
