Experts divided over sports concussion move

Australian experts are divided on a move by the American National Football League (NFL) to have independent neurological consultants on the sidelines from next season.

 

All team medical staffs will have "an unaffiliated neurological consultant" to help diagnose and manage players with traumatic brain injuries, the NFL announced Thursday to the applause of the American Academy of Neurology.


Concussion expert Dr Brad Partridge of the University of Queensland praised the move, saying it was something Australian football codes "should definitely consider".
