New NCAA Concussion Safety Guidelines Welcomed by Football Coaches, Athletic Trainers
Daily Press
Mike London well remembers his football playing days and the way in which head injuries were often treated. "You'd get your bell rung," Virginia's head coach said, "and you'd go to the sideline. The coach would grab your face mask and ask how you're doing. You'd say OK, then he'd smack your helmet and say, get back in there."

The Oklahoman
In the parking lot of any PGA Tour or Champions Tour golf tournament, there are two big, red trailers. It's a common sight. No big deal to most on tour. But Fred Funk, who had a knee replacement in 2009 and a thumb fused in 2011, said these trucks saved his career. Some say they've changed golf entirely. "The reason I'm even out here is because of those fitness trucks, no question," Funk, 58, said.

'The Pain is Always There'
ESPN Wisconsin
For years, the jersey had either been tucked neatly at the bottom of a drawer or hung at the back of a crowded closet — but never worn. Like any self-respecting Minnesota Vikings fan, Kayla Murphy steadfastly refused to put it on. Even though she was living in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
