Former NFL RB LenDale White Says He Suffered 20-30 Concussions, Would Abuse Vicodin

Former USC standout and NFL running back Lendale White recently stated he probably suffered between 20 and 30 concussions while playing in the league. It got so bad that he eventually started abusing pain medication to cope with it during his playing career.

“You lose consciousness and then all of a sudden it’s like shoooo-ooooof,” White told the Los Angeles Times’ Zach Helfand. “Like, that’s how it sounds, like shhhhhhloooof, and then all of a sudden you hear the play again.”

White also revealed he used Vicodin to deal with the unbearable pain, and eventually turned into a full blown addict.

“And I don’t mean like popping a pain pill because I’m hurt,” White said. “I mean popping scripts. Like 10 Vicodins at a time type [stuff]. You know what I mean? To feel it, like I’m high. To feel the numbness.”

Lendale finished his career with 2,349 yards rushing and 24 touchdowns in just 4 years of action. He was out of the league by 2009.
