NFL's Troy Vincent writes in Time how league faces culture change

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

  • Time Magazine published an opinion piece by NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent in which he said there needs to be a culture change throughout the NFL in regards to personal conduct.
  • ESPN looked at the NFL's long history of making football a family business among fathers, sons and siblings.
  • The Lansing (Mich.) State Journal questioned if the Big Ten Conference's new policy of having a press box spotter to watch for concussions was precipitated by the University of Michigan's handling of Shane Morris' head injury two months ago.
  • The Michigan Daily wrote about a talk by associate neurology professor Jeffrey Kutcher, who attempted Monday to discuss what he saw as many of the myths surrounding head injuries that he says have been misrepresented in the media.
