Georgia Southern University studying football concussion risks

Georgia Southern University is using a $385,000 grant to study the impact of concussions on football players, school officials said Thursday.
University President Brooks Keel told WALB that Georgia Southern was the recipient of a grant from the National Institutes of Health, and is using technology called the Helmet Impact Telemetry System — or HITS — to record every blow football players take to their heads during games and practice sessions.
