Dr. James Andrews: All High Schools Should Have Athletic Trainers
Fox Sports
If a famous athlete gets hurt these days, three words are likely to follow: Dr. James Andrews. The 71-year-old orthopedic surgeon is sports' ultimate fixer. His list of A-list patients is so long, it's easier to name famous jocks that haven't gone under his famed scalpel. He's the team physician for Alabama, Auburn and the Redskins, and just about every pro athletic trainer has him on speed dial if they need a consultation.

These risks include having another brain injury, being assaulted and suicide. The risks are even higher for those with a psychiatric or drug abuse problem, the researchers added.

YottaFire

Teaching Young Athletes About the Dangers of Concussions
Healthline
The national conversation about concussions has ramped up in recent months as details emerge about sports stars in the NFL and NHL suffering the long-term effects of head injuries. Part of the $765 million settlement between the NFL and 20,000 retired players and their spouses includes funding for concussion education in youth football. A total of $10 million has been set aside for education, but not all of it will be directed toward young people.

Citing Costs, NHL Injury Study Urges More Safety
The New York Times
An author of a new medical study said the high cost of paying injured NHL players should push the league to stiffen what he described as inadequate measures to prevent brain trauma, including rules that still allow fighting. "NHL owners need to do a better job of protecting their athletes — if not for their players, then for their own pocketbooks," said the author, Dr. Michael Cusimano, a neurosurgeon at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto.

The 'Rest' of the Concussion Story
nwi.com
Since concussion became a greater cause of concern 15 years ago, the first question from mouths of afflicted players has been: "How soon can I play again?" Mounting evidence, though, suggests that whether or not they are receiving an accurate or satisfactory answer, student-athletes — as well as their parents and coaches — are asking the wrong question. Instead, they should be asking, "When am I able to return to school?"

Indianapolis Business Journal
Indiana could soon become the first state to require high school football coaches to take part in a player safety and concussion-training course. The bill authored by Sen. Travis Holdman, R–Markle, would require the course every two years. "We'd be very proud to do this since USA Football, an arm of the NFL and players union is basically housed now and based (in Indianapolis)," Holdman said.
