Can the NFL do more about injuries? Tue, September 11, 2007
"See what you hit," reads the sign affixed to the walls of all 32 NFL locker-rooms along with a picture of a tackle being made with the head down.
Around the picture is a circle with a diagonal line, the international symbol for "not allowed."
Replays show Kevin Everett, a special teams player for the Buffalo Bills, appeared to see what he was hitting when he tackled Denver's Domenik Hixon on the opening kickoff of the second half against Denver on Sunday.
Still, it still didn't prevent him from incurring a severe spinal injury.
So, what can the NFL do about these types of injuries? Is educating players through signs enough? Or should every player go through training on how to safely make a tackle? Have your say.
