Reuters
More than half of high school athletes with concussions play despite their symptoms, and often their coaches aren't aware of the injury, according to a new study. Most U.S. states have passed laws intended to prevent high school athletes from having a concussion go unrecognized and risking further danger by continuing to play, but legislation may not be enough, the researchers say.

Dermatologist Provides Skin Infection Prevention Tips for Athletes
Infection Control Today
Although many athletes understand the importance of keeping their muscles and bones healthy, it's also important for them to take care of their skin. Sports equipment, especially protective helmets and pads, creates a warm, moist and dark environment for the germs that can cause skin infections to grow. "Athletes are at an increased risk of skin infection, which can have serious consequences and may take them — and their teammates — out of the game for days, weeks or months," says dermatologist Jeffrey V. Benabio.

Are You Ready to Run?
The Buffalo News
What a winter. Two blizzards. An average temperature more than 5 degrees below normal. Thirty-seven days in the single digits.
