Mirror Online
A pair of Belgian surgeons believe they have identified a brand-new, previously undiscovered knee ligament. There have been glimpses in past research, but Dr Claes and Professor Johan Bellemans say this is the first time the structure of the anterolateral ligament and its purpose have been so clearly established. And in perhaps the most eye-opening insight they also suggest it could play a part in one of the most common sports injuries, the anterior cruciate ligament tear.

'Don't Tell Coach': Playing Through Concussions
The New York Times via NT Health
Nausea, sensitivity to bright lights, headache: Chris Coyne knew right away that the helmet-to-helmet hit during football practice had given him a concussion. His fifth, in fact. So he knew just what to do. He reasoned that, since only 10 days remained in the season and he was both team captain and a senior at Staples High School in Westport, Conn., he would tough it out. He had played through worse concussions.

Did NCAA Ignore Concussion Issue?
Fox Sports
Attorneys for four former college athletes and the NCAA are in the midst of a mediation process that could settle a class-action lawsuit alleging that the governing body for college sports ignored a burgeoning concussion problem for decades. Some experts believe the NCAA could have a harder time defending itself than the National Football League, which recently agreed to dole out $765 million to pay for injury settlements and medical monitoring and care for former players who suffered concussions and other brain injuries.

Team Eating Disorder Treatment Approach Spreading Among College Campuses
Philly.com
As eating disorders on college campuses become more prevalent, the demand for effective on-campus assessment and treatment is equally growing.

But university students are difficult to keep in the circle so mimicking the team approach conveniently on campus is becoming a way to meet everyone's needs.
