NFL says concussions way up; no release of full injury data`

🕐 1 min read

The NFL says reported concussions this season rose 58 percent in regular-season games to the highest number in any of the past four years.

The league issued its concussion data for 2015 on Friday, a little more than a week before the Super Bowl, but did not release any data about total injuries.

According to the NFL, there were 182 reported concussions from 2015 regular-season games, reversing a recent downward trend. There were 115 in 2014, 148 in 2013, and 173 in 2012.

A year ago, the league touted those decreases as a reflection of players changing the way they play football.

NFL Senior Vice President of Health and Safety Policy Jeff Miller says Friday the league is trying to figure out why concussion numbers rose so much this season.
