Goodell: NFL making progress regarding concussions
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the culture in the league is
changing regarding concussions, and there’s now more awareness that
such injuries are serious.
At his annual Super Bowl-week news conference Friday, Goodell
said there’s more work to do to deal with concussions, but the
league has made progress to ensure that players who suffer
concussions receive immediate medical help.
Concussions and their effects became a subject of much scrutiny
across the league this season. Researchers found more evidence of a
link between such injuries and dementia, and the league adopted new
policies about clearing players to return to games.
