NFL, NFLPA nearing agreement on NFL concussion protocol changes
The NFL and NFLPA had agreed last weekend to parameters of updated NFL concussion protocols that will rule out players who exhibit gross motor instability regardless of
any possible contributing factors, such as with Tua Tagovailoa in the Dolphins’ Week 3 game against the Bills.
The NFL said in its statement.
“As we have discussed with the NFLPA, we agree that changes to the join NFL-NFLPA protocol are necessary to further enhance player safety,”
“We have already spoken to members of the NFL Head, Neck and Spine Committee and the leadership of the Unaffiliated Neurotrauma Consultants and Independent Certified Athletic Trainers who serve as spotters to discuss these likely changes.”
