Study: More recovery time needed for football injuries

Updated: Thursday, April 17 2014, 08:15 AM EDT

Rochester, N.Y. -- Local research showed the offseason might not be enough time for football players to recover from brain injuries.

A University of Rochester study examined the brains of college football players who hadn’t suffered a concussion. Six months after the season, they found evidence of brain injuries.

Researchers said players need more time to heal, and that athletes could have a greater risk of head injuries if they play back-to-back seasons.
