Study: Even without concussions, football players see brain changes

Football is a game of hard hits, including blows to the head. For decades, players were encouraged to use their helmeted heads to plow down opposing team members.

For nearly a decade, concussions among children have required enforced rest in a dim room with no screens, books or stimulation of any kind. It isn't easy, especially for children with a lot of energy to burn, but it was thought necessary to promote healing.
