Independent neurologists to staff NFL games in 2013

NFL will have independent neurological consultants on sidelines next season

According to Andrea Kremer of the NFL Network and sideline reporter for NBC’s Sunday Night Football, the NFL will have unaffiliated neurological consultants on the sidelines during games beginning next season.

This move stands in stark contrast to the inane comments made last November by Richard Ellenbogen, the co-chair of the NFL's concussion committee. We heartily applaud the league for taking an important step toward better handling of head injuries.
