Science Daily
With increasing concern about concussions from sports, some players have started wearing electronic sensors to measure head impacts.

The Huffington Post
By Dr. Joseph Horrigan: A friend of mine sent me an email about the alarming number of pectoralis major muscle tears suffered by Minnesota Vikings players.
