NFL Players With Concussions Sidelined Longer: Study

SUNDAY, Oct. 24 (HealthDay News) -- Concussions in professional football have been a hot topic of late: Just last week, the National Football League announced it would begin suspending players for illegal and dangerous hits that often result in head injuries.

Now, a new 12-year study of NFL data suggests that in recent years, players have been sidelined significantly longer after concussions than they were in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The study, by former members of the NFL's Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Committee, compared injury and treatment statistics from two consecutive six-year periods (1996 to 2001, and 2002 to 2007) and found the average number of days that players were sidelined after a concussion more than doubled.

Casson and his co-authors compared these two consecutive six-year periods and looked at the circumstances of the injury, the patterns of symptoms, and a player's time lost from NFL participation. The researchers found that the average number of days lost from a concussion increased from 1.92 days during 1996-2001 to 4.73 days during 2002 to 2007. Significantly fewer concussed players returned to a game in which they were injured from 2002 to 2007, compared to 1996-2001, and 8 percent fewer players returned to play in less than a week. That number jumped to 25 percent for those players who lost consciousness during the 2002-2007 period.

The study authors said there were a number of possible explanations for the findings, including an increase in concussion severity, greater willingness of players to report their symptoms to medical staff, and team medical staffers adopting a more co
