Traumatic Sports Injuries Tracked, Prevented with High-Tech Mouthguard
NBC News
A young Irish inventor, concerned with the lack of attention paid to head injuries in full-contact sports, has invented a mouthguard with built-in sensors that can tell someone on the sidelines when a player has received a serious — yet invisible — injury. The ongoing controversy about concussions in the NFL provides a powerful backdrop for Mark Dillon's invention. Ice hockey, in addition to Gaelic football, inspired him to address the problem.

There are Good and Bad Ways for Athletes to Gain Weight
News & Observer
Miles Kliever, Apex, N.C., High's certified athletic trainer, said he normally expects a freshman football player to gain 20 to 30 pounds during his high school career. That, he said, is a normal gain for young athletes who still are maturing. But some players want to gain more and gain it quickly. "I'm advising proper diet and the weight room, and they are taking a supplement somebody recommended and are eating lunch at Bojangles," Kliever said. "The athlete pays for it eventually."

The Dallas Morning News
Dallas Skyline's do-everything star Derrick Dixon suffered a high-ankle sprain in Zero Week against The Woodlands. In years past, he probably would have been lost for several weeks as he was nursed to recovery. But, just two weeks after the injury, Dixon had recovered enough that coach Reginald Samples felt comfortable using him in a game if the situation demanded it, thanks in large part to the efforts of Skyline's new athletic trainer, Cody Legg.

Study: Shock-Absorbing Running Shoes Don't Reduce Injury Risk
redOrbit
Despite advertising claims that softer soles in shoes can help runners keep from getting hurt, researchers from France and Luxembourg found no evidence suggesting the hardness of a person's footwear increases or decreases the risk of running-related injuries. Writing in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, experts describe how they conducted a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial probing the impact of a runner's shoes on their running-related injury risk.

In the latest report from the WUIS Health Desk, Peter Gray reports on a push for Illinois to follow the NFL and other states in limiting days of full contact football practice.

Concussions are Growing Concern, but With No State Oversight in Wisconsin, Who's Counting?
The Cap Times
Scott Rohlfing left Verona's football game at Madison La Follette feeling like his brain was going to bulge out of his eye sockets. The senior offensive lineman and team captain doesn't remember much about the Sept. 12 game, but knows he took a pretty good hit to the helmet in the second quarter. He continued to play, but well into the second half, the pain was too much. "I just could not stand it," Rohlfing said.
