from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
They accused a fellow doctor of minimizing solid evidence of the dangers of football concussions. They concurred that data collected by the NFL's former brain-injury leadership was "infected," said that their committee should be assembled anew, and formally requested that the group's former chairman, Dr. Elliot Pellman, not speak at a conference. For the first time these remarks came not from outside critics of NFL research but from those now in charge of it — Dr. H. Hunt Batjer and Dr. Richard G. Ellenbogen, prominent neurosurgeons who became co-chairmen of a new league committee in March.  More

from New Jersey Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Andrews, who will make his third consecutive World Cup, will be the lead trainer in a four-man squad. Before, during and after the games, Andrews will provide physical therapy, nutritional guidance and assist the players with whatever they need to maximize their performance.
