UVA study suggests steps to reduce football concussion risks

CHARLOTTESVILLE (WVIR) - Researchers at the University of Virginia say too many college football players are receiving unnecessary hits during practice and they're calling on the NCAA to regulate practices.

As it stands right now the NCAA does not regulate full-contact practices of college teams. The organization says it is waiting on data to make any big moves on regulating equipment or practices operations. UVA neuroscience researchers say they now have data available for the NCAA to consider.
