Most Concussions In High School, College Football Student-Athletes Occur During Practice

Reuters (5/5, Doyle) reports that the majority of concussions suffered by high school and college football student-athletes occur during football practices, not at the games themselves, according to a study published online in JAMA Pediatrics.

HealthDay (5/5, Reinberg) reports that after studying “data on more than 20,000 young football players across the” US, researchers found that “more than 57 percent of concussed high school and college players were injured at practice, not games.” The NPR (5/5, Shute) “Shots” blog also covers the study.
