Fox NFL reporter Pam Oliver has revealed that she was diagnosed with concussion after she was hit in the face by a football.
Despite initially laughing off the incident, Oliver has now revealed that she sought her doctor's help the next day after waking up in pain.
"I really could not take light - the light from the TV, the accent lighting," Oliver told New York Daily News. "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. I felt clear-headed and stronger, but the headaches still come and go."
Oliver will return to work for the clash between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers on September 8.
