An analysis of NFL injury data shows that players with concussions missed an average of 16 days last season, up from only four days in 2005.
Sure didn't take long for some significant injuries at NFL training camps _ Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin, Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta, Denver Broncos center Dan Koppen, to name only three.
Changes to the NFL's kickoff rules appear to account for a slight decline in the number of concussions reported across the league last season, according to a consulting firm's study of injury data provided by the NFL Players Association.
David said his company has done consulting for the NFL Players Association in the past and received the data for this study from the union, but wasn't paid by it.
David said "you now have more severe injuries overall" because of the hike in lengthy absences for reported concussions.
