Impact of Concussions on the NFL

I believe that the new policies on concussions will have a huge impact on the NFL and the upcoming labor agreement.

Specifically:

  1. Rosters will have to increase – there have been grumblings about this anyway
  2. Game Day Rosters will have to increase
  3. Injured Reserve may have to change and allow players to come back after 4 or 6 weeks
  4. A combination of the above will have to take place at some level

Remember the NFL is also looking to increase the number of games per year.  There is no way NFL teams can run under the current roster limits if players are held out longer for concussions and games are increased.  More players in the NFL means that the current dollar splits won’t suffice either.  Could make an already complicated labor agreement even moreso.
