Report: Football sources aren't embracing idea of hit counts

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

  • In its

  series on concussions this week, 
 the Omaha World-Herald examined the growing business of concussion sensors, including a study that seeks to put a hit count on area youth football players. However, not every youth football organization is embracing the idea of hit counts. 
  • The World-Herald series also looked at the business of helmets and the advances being tested at the University of Nebraska.
  • The FDA wrote on its website that there is no approved drug that can promote faster healing time for a concussion.
