Dunlap was sidelined due to a concussion early last season, but he downplayed how the injury will affect him moving forward. "Concussions, they happen. We play a contact sport," Dunlap said. "As far as I’m concerned, if I have another one that’s not the end. … I appreciate people being concerned, but I’m fine. I feel great."
