How far would Brian Urlacher go to keep playing football? On HBO's "Real Sports," he admits he's regularly taken the potentially dangerous painkiller Toradol, and says he would lie about having a concussion in order to stay in the game. [via]

Despite the risks, Urlacher is unrepentant. "First of all we love football. We want to be on the field as much as we can be. If we can be out there, it may be stupid, it may be dumb, call me dumb and stupid then because I want to be on the football field."
