Big Ten Medical Staffs Will Examine Concussion Policies Next Week
A Big Ten medical professional says the classroom shouldn’t be ignored when NCAA athletes are diagnosed with a concussion. Concussions are a hot topic in college sports. An NCAA safety panel recommended this week that schools create a detailed plan to handle concussions. In December, the same panel recommended a policy that athletes be sidelined until cleared by medical staff if they display concussion-related symptoms. Both the National Football League and NCAA also recommend that an athlete sit out the rest of the game or practice if diagnosed with a concussion.
