University of Minnesota to Use Medical Spotter During Football Games
The fallout from Michigan's handling of Shane Morris' concussion Sept. 27 has spurred the University of Minnesota to take a new step with its own medical protocol. Effective immediately, the Gophers will have an athletic trainer serving as a medical spotter in the press box. According to a team spokesman, the athletic trainer will sit in an auxiliary radio booth with access to video replay, and will be able to relay any pertinent medical information to the sideline through a headset.
