Al.com
Count University of Arizona head athletic trainer Randy Cohen among the skeptics about the NCAA Football Rules Committee's proposal to slow down hurry-up offenses in the name of safety. "If you want to do it for a competitive advantage, then come out and say you're doing it for a competitive advantage," said Cohen, who chairs the college committee of the NATA.

The Sporting News
Remember the mild panic that took hold in the NBA over the last year or so, the hand-wringing and nail-biting over the sudden rise of ACL injuries around the league? Well, take a deep breath. The spike is gone and, according to doctors in the field, there was never really any spike to begin with.

Exercise Could Aid Concussion Recovery
Outside Online
