CINCINNATI (AP) - The NFL commissioner says the league accepts and is taking a leadership role in improving sports safety at all levels.
Roger Goodell spoke Friday morning to the National PTA convention in Cincinnati. The Parent Teacher Association has urged its members to seek improved head-injury reporting and training in schools.
The National Football League is facing a federal lawsuit over concussion-related injuries by thousands of former players. Goodell says the NFL has taken action to improve the safety of its players.
He says the league also is supporting initiatives to make youth football safer, such as one called Heads Up Football that teaches techniques for young players to avoid head contact.
Goodell urges the school activists to push for children to have properly trained coaches and safe equipment.
