NFL Teams Now Operate Under a Concussion Management Protocol
The New York Times
With the NFL agreeing to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to settle a lawsuit brought by about 5,000 former players who said the league hid from them the dangers of repeated hits to the head, a backpedaling league has hastily amended its methodology. The NFL now has a concussion management protocol, outlined in an inches-thick document that commands teams to institute a specific, detailed game-day and postconcussion course of action.

Guidelines for Young Athletes to Reduce Injuries
The Wall Street Journal
Children are dedicating themselves to a single sport too early and spending too much time playing it, say doctors who are seeing more children coming in with overuse injuries. Playing multiple sports leads to fewer overuse injuries, lower burnout rates and better overall athletes, experts say. Focusing on a single sport should only begin around the age of puberty or even later, when a child's body has developed enough to handle the stress.

High School Football Tied to Brain Changes, Even Without Concussion
HealthDay News
There's been a lot of discussion recently about concussions and contact sports, but new research suggests that even less severe head injuries might lead to brain changes among high school football players.

Benefits of Bringing an Industrial Athletic Trainer into Your Workplace
HR.BLR.com
Ever hear of the "industrial athlete"? The concept is that employees, like athletes, perform better when they are properly trained and fit for duty. Proponents say that the right training leads to fewer injuries, quicker return to work, and reduced costs. The National Athletic Trainers Association cites OSHA statistics indicating that 40 percent of total work-related injuries and illnesses are strains and tears, and an additional 29 percent are related to musculoskeletal disorders.

For Towson Football Player, Near-Death Experience Merely a 'Speed Bump'
Baltimore Sun
Lift. Oomph. Thump. Lift. Oomph. Thump. Time and again, Gavin Class flips a 500-pound tractor tire around a fitness center. Next, he hoists a 20-pound medicine ball over his head and slams it to the ground 20 times. Finally, Class rams his shoulder into a conditioning sled weighing 165 pounds and drives it 30 yards. In a sprint. Impressive feats, all — and more so considering that 15 months ago Class was unable to walk, talk or raise his arms even to brush his teeth.

Buckeyes ID Dollars and Sense of Sports Safety
Times of Northwest Indiana
As the media assault on football in general and the NFL in particular has continued unabated this autumn (it still is autumn, isn’t it?), a detailed study of medical expenditures by sport was released earlier this season by Ohio State University. And at first blush, it seems a bit odd that the national media did not pounce on the study's results when they were published in the September issue of the Physician & Sportsmedicine, because they are extensive and conclusive.
