I seem to remember that a few years ago, several prominent NFL quarterbacks were forced into retirement by reoccurring concussions or other head trama. Steve Young and Troy Aikman, two multiple time Super Bowl champions and future hall of famers spring readily to mind. The league, not wanting to see any more of its storybook heroes, brought down early employed a number of new regulations intended to protect quarterbacks. The one you see mentioned most on Sunday afternoons today is the baring of defensive players leading with their helmets. More specifically, a defensive player cannot hit a quarterback primarily with his helmet. By limiting the jarring head to head collisions that the quarterback has to endure over the course of the game, the NFL has thus attempted to keep potential legends on the field long enough to solidify their status.
The rule has been extended not only to quarterbacks as of 2011. Leading a tackle with your helmet is a serious penalty.
There is also another penalty called Roughing, which is hitting the quarterback long after he releases the ball, results in a 15-yard penalty.
well they are about the same they always have concussions

There is no such thing. A football helmet is a football helmet just different style , names, and comfort

foot ball and hockey have the most concussions. soccer does not have as much concussions.
Football is a far more dangerous sport than cheerleading. Don't get me wrong Cheerleading is dangerous but in football you get at least 5 concussions a game... Very minor concussions which add up and can lead to coma or even death when cheerleading the WORST thing that'd happen is breaking your neck and maybe being paralyzed. Football is more dangerous!

Joint injuries are the most common injuries in high school and college football. However, concussions have become a more recognized risk of playing football in recent years.
To prevent injuries like broken bones, concussions, a sprang or anything else that would physically effect how they play.
Concussions are very common. Especially in football and soccer. Recent research has shown that athletes who suffer more than one significant concussion resulting in loss of consciousness show signs of brain damage later in life.
Athletes that participate in football can suffer from traumatic head and knee injuries, concussions, and broken bones. This occurs because football is a contact sport and athletes often get hit while playing.
