Football is an enormous part of American culture, and people/kids start playing when they are pretty young. Fathers have their sons play football, and the trend usually continues down the generational line. Unfortunately, injuries are common in football just like they are in many other sports, yet football has a past of extreme violence. Injured football players will push themselves through injury and rehab to get back on the field, because that is just the nature of the game. Occasionally athletes try to get back to playing too soon, and risk further and potentially more severe injuries. One of the main injuries people receive from football, and something that has been a big deal lately, is injuries with the head. In recent years, concussions

A concussion is a serious head injury that can happen to any player, and in just about any sport. Indeed, it has been happening to a countless number of athletes for centuries.
