Concussions have been making headlines as the game of football has progressed, has become faster and athletes have become stronger. The hits are harder and the discussion of concussions are plenty.

In Week 5 we saw two NFL players go down with head injuries. Washington Redskin's rookie quarterback, Robert Griffin III, went out with a head injury against the Atlanta Falcons. Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback, Matt Cassel, sustained a concussion against the Baltimore Ravens.

From the new design of Riddell's 360 Helmet to the Xenith Helmet more recently discussed on Sports Talk with Warren Moon in support of it. While this is no laughing matter. It's great to see how far we have come.
