NFL says concussions down 25 percent


PHOENIX: The number of reported concussions suffered by players in NFL games declined 25 percent in the 2014 season, the league said on Thursday (Friday in Manila), ahead of the Super Bowl. Concussions has been a hot-button issue for the sport, amid accusations the NFL is not doing enough to protect players. In a health and safety briefing, the league said the number of concussions caused by helmet-to-helmet hits had fallen most dramatically, an apparent result of stricter rules on such tackles.
