More Athletic Trainers Wanted at Arizona High Schools
The Arizona Republic
Much of the focus on student athletes' safety has been about injuries that happen on the field. Advocates for sports safety are now turning the spotlight toward those on the sidelines — the athletic trainers who evaluate student injuries. There is no state regulation or policy in Arizona that requires a high school to employ athletic trainers, a flaw that leads to inconsistencies in how sports injuries are handled and by whom.

What's an ACL and Why is the Injury So Devastating?
The Examiner

Sam Bradford, starting quarterback for the St Louis Rams, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, re-rupturing the same ligament he'd injured in November. The anterior cruciate ligament extends from the thighbone (femur) to the shinbone (tibia) and keeps the bones together, along with other tissues in the knee.
