Report: Greater injury awareness brings reality to weekly injury list

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

  • CBS Sports reported that the NFL is fine with how the possible head injury was handled with Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who said he was reluctant to tell the doctors on hand he might have suffered a concussion last Sunday. Charles was put through the NFL concussion protocol on the sidelines, according to the report.
  • Newsweek looked at how the NCAA teams are following the NCAA's concussion policy.
  • The Providence Journal reviewed a new book by Mark Edmundson, "Why Football Matters," which details how the positive aspects of football have helped him through life.
