Justin Gilbert of the Browns thinks his performance last week was flawless.

Justin Gilbert of the Browns suffered dearly this season from concussions

Since 2012, Frontline has been tracking concussions in the NFL. This year the NFL is passing new limits.

In 2012, there were 171, in 2013, there were 152, in 2014, there were 123 and this year with the season still going there have been 197 players diagnosed with a concussion.

The number is up big time this season.

The Cleveland Browns and San Diego Chargers led the NFL with 16 concussions each. The least amount were the Oakland Raiders who had 2.

Here is the breakdown per position:

Quarterback – 12, Running back – 11, Wide Receivers – 23, Tight End – 17, Offensive Tackle – 15, Guard 9, Center 9.

Defensive End – 10, Defensive Tackle – 7, Linebacker – 24, Cornerback – 41, Safety – 17.

Cornerbacks have the worst luck.
