Dorsey Levens, former running back for the Green Bay Packers, was at Northeastern University on Thursday to screen “Bell Rung,” his documentary detailing the strife that comes with professional football. Joining Levens for a panel discussion about concussions were former New England Patriot Sammy Morris, a free agent running back in the NFL; Dan Lebowitz, executive director of Northeastern’s sport in society program; Neal McGrath, a neuropsychologist who specializes in the evaluation and rehabilitation of traumatic brain injuries at Sports Concussion New England; and moderator and sportswriter Ron Thomas. Levens said the post-screening discussion “was thought-provoking, at the very least,” and felt the documentary was well-received by the audience. “Bell Rung” focuses largely on sports-induced concussions, and Levens said the film is a collection of “what we learned about concussions and the long-term ramifications of repeated head blows. We want to bring it to light, not just for the younger kids, but for everyone who plays.”
