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.
