New Sideline Concussion Evaluation to be Adopted by NFL

In a release on Wednesday, the NFL says it will use a new sideline test to determine concussions next season according to the Associated Press.

The details will be announced in Indianapolis on Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

The new test will include a checklist of symptoms, a limited neurological evaluation and a balance assessment. It will employ many components of the evaluation process developed during a Concussion in Sport meeting at Zurich in 2008.

The test was developed by the NFL’s Head, Neck, and Spine Committee, with input from the NFL team physicians and athletic trainers and their professional associations.
