LinkedinE-mail article
Washington Redskins kick returner Rock Cartwright remembers his brain "shaking like a bell" when he was walloped in a game against the New York Giants a few years ago. "You know how a bell vibrates? That's how my brain was going at that time," he said. "I think five minutes later, I came back to myself. I went back out there and played football." What Cartwright never did when the hit happened? He never told Washington's medical staff his head ached. He's not alone. Thirty of 160 NFL players surveyed by The Associated Press from Nov. 2-15 replied that they have hidden or played down the effects of a concussion. More

from The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Most, if not all, colleges in the top three divisions have a team physician or athletic trainer supervising games. Some smaller colleges do not have a doctor or athletic trainer at practices, however, where concussions can also occur. More
