Practice limits won't concern Texas high school football coaches
The Dallas Morning News
Dallas-area high school football coaches aren't going to change how they practice because of a new rule designed to reduce the risks of concussions. They don't have to. They were already conforming to the mandate before it was approved by the University Interscholastic League in June. Starting this season, no UIL player is allowed to participate in more than 90 minutes of full-contact football practice per week during the regular season and playoffs. Full contact means football drills or live game simulations where there is contact at game speed and players execute full tackles and take players to the ground.

The New York Times
Even by the alarmist standards of many product warnings, the labels on the backs of the football helmets are bracingly blunt: "No helmet system can protect you from serious brain and/or neck injuries including paralysis or death. To avoid these risks, do not engage in the sport of football." Schutt Sports has plastered these words on its helmets for about a decade.
