The NFL’s latest safety advisories
The NFL announced Monday that it has issued its latest safety advisory for all of its players, including those who were suspended for the 2017 season.
The NFL also said it will continue to update the players’ health and well-being with their health care providers and personal trainers.
The advisory comes as the NFL has been under fire for not doing enough to ensure the safety of its current players, which include players on the Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants.
It was also criticized by some for not taking the issue of concussions seriously enough.
“Players should always be aware of the risks associated with playing sports,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
“We have an obligation to ensure that all of our players have the tools necessary to play safely, and we have a responsibility to keep them informed when the circumstances of a player’s concussion become critical.”
The league issued a new safety advisory that includes recommendations for how the league can better manage concussions.
Players must wear a headgear to protect their head, wear a protective helmet, and be alert for any changes in their posture, the league said.
