What Is Medical Care Like on an NFL Sideline?
Bleacher Report
An NFL game is a complicated beast. Every Sunday, two head coaches and their staffs engage in a 60-minute chess match. In total, 106 players carry out each move with jaw-dropping athletic prowess, incredible strength and superhuman speed and agility. All the while, medical professionals such as Dr. Matthew Matava are watching, ready to act. After all, as an inherently dangerous sport, injuries, for better or for worse, are a part of the game of football.

Can Youth Football Be Saved? (And Should It Be?)
The Atlantic
From Super Bowl Sunday to Friday Night Lights to the totally gonzo — yet somehow predictable — spectacle of Colin Powell and Roger Goodell joining forces to recite the Declaration of Independence (because ... 'Merica?), football is our de facto national pastime. That said, the game is in trouble. Not at the top, where the NFL rolls along as an unstoppable entertainment Ozymandias. No, the sport's problems are at the grassroots level, where participation is either stagnant or declining.

Menstrual Cycle Linked to Poorer Recovery From Head Injuries
Medical News Today
It could be argued that some women have enough to contend with around the time of their menstrual cycle. But uncomfortable pains are just the beginning, as new research suggests that women who suffer head injuries within the two weeks before their period have a slower recovery time and poorer health up to one month after injury. Researchers from the University of Rochester in New York say that if these findings are confirmed, they could change the treatment and prognosis of women who suffer head injuries from sports, car accidents, falls or combat.

Even Football Heroes Can Be Laid Low by Depression
HealthDay via U.S. News & World Report
Will Heininger was a 295-pound defensive tackle for the University of Michigan at the end of his freshman year when he realized he had a big problem: He was severely depressed. Surrounded by a collegiate culture of superathletes in a sport known for its toughness, Heininger was afraid to let anyone know how desperate he was. "I had consuming thoughts from the time I woke up to the time I went to bed," he said.

Play Now, Pay Later: Inside The Rising Injuries of Youth Sports
PIX 11
Over 4.5 million children play youth sports every year. Many of them have dreams of someday playing in the big leagues. Three-and-a-half million get injured each year, and for some that dream ends too soon. Those injuries are up by 60 percent for baseball and football alone over the last decade. "Baseball, that's everything, that's my pride and joy, that's my childhood," said Peter Guzman, 20, who used to be a star pitcher. He says he could throw 88 mph when he was 15.

Is It Really a Good Idea for Kids to Play a Sport All Year Round?
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
It starts out innocently enough. You buy your kindergartner hockey skates, or a soccer ball. Maybe a T-ball bat. You get involved in a community or church recreation league. The first year plays out like the feel-good parts of the movie "Parenthood." There's no stealing bases or basketballs. The nets are low, the fields are half-sized. The kids fist-pump when they make a goal — sometimes on the wrong net. Nobody keeps score.
