Fans will learn real-time results of NFL's new player-tracking sensors

Thursday's health and safety news from the world of football:

  • USA Today reported on the NFL's player tracking system that goes league-wide this season, allowing more player information than ever to teams and to fans. Every player will have two tiny sensors attached to his shoulder pads during the "live" phase. It is expected the information will integrate into the team's health and safety technology as it develops.
  • The Gainesville Sun featured researchers from the University of Florida, whose studies have found that the King-Devick vision test can positively diagnose a concussion.
