Concussions aren't really an issue as long as they are not on top of each other. I've had 9 concussions in my life and have no adverse effects. But I never had a concussion and then while I was still affected by that one, got another one.
That is why the NFL is cracking down. A lot of players feel like they have to get back out there. This is when they are at huge risk.
As long as your body, in this case your brain, completely heals you're not likely to have long term ill effects. But if you don't allow it to heal, then the consequences can be really bad.
