College Concussions

Note in this NY Times story about college football player concussions the primary concern of Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh about the concussion recently suffered by his QB. Harbaugh isn’t worried about the player’s health so much, but whether his injury will impact his performance. “If there was some kind of postconcussion effect, like being not as accurate with his passes, that would without question impact how much he plays,” Harbaugh said.”
