Michael Vick Will Have Extra Padding in His Helmet Whenever He Returns

Michael Vick is still doubtful to play against the Cowboys next week (not that any of you care). But whenever he returns, he’ll have extra padding in his helmet provided by Unequal, the local company that makes the special rib protection he (sometimes) wears.

Ed Werder has the story on ESPN.com:

At the urging of neurologist Dr. Dimi Barot, Vick met at his home with Unequal Technology Corporation CEO Rob Vito to be measured for the new "dome'' device made of the company's Concussion Reduction Technology.

Vick had Unequal retro-fit his helmet with similar padding upon returning from a concussion in September 2011. The same company designed protective Kevlar devices that enabled Vick and Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo to play with serious rib injuries in recent seasons.


It makes sense that Werder would have that report– he allowed Vito to hit him in the chest with a shovel on live TV a few years ago to demonstrate the strength of Unequal products.

I spoke with Vito after Vick broke his ribs in the pre-season. He explained Unequal's relationship with Vick (here).

    You can put all the padding you want inside the helmet, but it won’t keep your brain from bouncing around inside your skull.

    Vick should take it easy the rest of the season. No reason to get killed for nothing.

    According to his mobile app the helmets are lined with 100% soft puppy fur

  • duhhh November 28, 2012 at 10:14 am

    He should just do what that one kid did in the Little Giants for the first day of practice

  • Coach Reid November 28, 2012 at 10:29 am

    will the padding keep him from throwing picks all game?

    Here is the first question that comes to mind. If this type of technology is readily available on the marketplace then why hasn’t he been wearing this helmet all season? Better yet, why isn’t every player that plays a sport that utilizes a helmet, required to wear a helmet with this technology. I am willing to ascertain that it all boils down to the owners trying to save a few bucks. Unbelievable.
