New Study: NFL Concussions Up 73% In 2017 Preseason; 16% in Regular Season

I’m telling you, the damage done by concussions, most notably CTE, will be the end of it. Even with heightened awareness, concussions were higher this preseason (up 73%) and regular season (up 16%).

What’s the League doing to combat this problem?

The highest instance of concussions during the regular season were in Thursday night games.  Players have been increasingly vocal about abolishing these games, noting that playing on shorter rest makes the game less safe.  Those insights are no longer anecdotal.

Not a great time to be getting into the pro football business.
