CHICAGO -- Continuing to play despite a concussion doubles recovery time for teen athletes and leads to worse short-term mental function than in those immediately removed from action, a study found.Its billed as the first to compare recovery outcomes for athletes removed from a game or practice compared with those who arent. The study was small, involving 69 teens treated at a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center concussion clinic, but the results bolster evidence supporting the growing number of return-to-play laws and policies nationwideThe study was published Monday in the journal Pediatrics.KEEPING SCOREThe study involved athletes aged 15 on average from several sports, including football, soccer, ice hockey and basketball who had concussions during a game or practice. Half continued to play and took 44 days on average to recover from symptoms, versus 22 days in those who were immediately sidelined.Sidelined players reported symptoms immediately, including dizziness, headaches, mental fogginess and fatigue, and were diagnosed with concussions by trainers or team physicians. The others, who continued playing for 19 minutes on average, delayed reporting symptoms and were diagnosed later.Those who continued to play had worse scores on mental function tests performed eight days after the concussion and 30 days after the concussion. Medical records showed mental function had been similar in all players before their concussions.RISKY RETURNSReturn-to-play policies are widespread, especially in youth athletics, and they typically recommend sidelining players after a suspected concussion until symptoms resolve. One of the main reasons is to prevent a rare condition called second-impact syndrome -- potentially fatal brain swelling or bleeding that can occur when a player still recovering from a concussion gets hit again in the head.The study results show that a prolonged recovery is another important risk from returning to play too soon -- one that no one had really calculated until now, said Dr. Allen Sills, a Vanderbilt University neurosurgeon. He was not involved in the research.NOT REPORTEDAbout 300,000 sports-related concussions occur each year nationwide among all ages. In high school athletics, they occur at a rate of almost 3 per 10,000 games or practices.Evidence suggests up to 50 percent of concussions in teen sports arent reported. Athletes are sometimes not aware theyve experienced a concussion, or they suspect a head injury but continue playing because they dont want to let their teammates down, said University of Arkansas concussion researcher R.J. Elbin, the studys lead author.The results give us more ammunition to persuade young athletes to heed the return-to-play advice, Elbin said.---Online:Pediatrics: http://www.pediatrics.orgCDC: AP Medical Writer Lindsey Tanner at Her work can be found at Broncos Jerseys Sale .

RENO, Nev. -- Three people whose votes could determine whether a nearly $2 billion stadium is built to lure the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas were appointed Tuesday to vacant seats in the Nevada Legislature.The three northern Nevada residents, including a former Stanford football player, will join other state lawmakers for a special session the governor is expected to convene next month to consider raising hotel room taxes in the Las Vegas area to help finance a 65,000-seat, domed stadium that could be home to the NFL team.The current informal proposal on the table would tax only hotel guests in Las Vegas and Clark County, with no direct impact on Washoe County, Reno or Sparks. But critics fear that in the event of revenue shortfalls, the burden could fall to all Clark County taxpayers or, potentially, taxpayers statewideI am a fan and support football as a sport, said ex-Stanford linebacker Dominic Brunetti, a Republican commercial real estate broker.And as a business, I respect the NFL, he said. But only if it is fair to those communities and families it influences and impacts through oftentimes very, very complicated deal structures.Similar concerns were expressed by the other appointees -- Republican Jesse Haw, a Reno developer, and Democrat Julia Ratti, a Sparks city councilwoman already running for state Senate in November.We are told it only is going to affect Clark County. But until we have the bill, we dont know, Haw said.Under Nevada law, county commissions have the authority to appoint interim members to the Legislature when a seat is vacant.Typically, when the vacancy occurs near the end or between legislative sessions, seats remain vacant until the next general election. But Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval asked Washoe and Clark counties to find temporary replacements now so the Legislature can expedite efforts to lure the Raiders to town before NFL owners are expected to take a position on such a move early next year.Nevada law requires a two-thirds majority of the entire Legislature -- not just the sitting members -- forr such a proposal to win approval.dddddddddddd Still to be filled are two vacant seats in the Las Vegas area.No formal bill can be drafted until the Legislature meets. But earlier this month, the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee recommended raising Vegas-area hotel taxes to put $750 million toward a stadium. Las Vegas Sands casino magnate Sheldon Adelson plans to invest $650 million in the venue.Three-quarters of NFL owners would need to approve any team relocation, and they could do so when they meet in January. Oakland officials and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said theyre hopeful the team can stay in the Bay Area where the team plays in an aging stadium.Bob Lucey, a Washoe County commissioner and chairman of the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority, said the Raiders relocation to Vegas would present an unprecedented opportunity for the states tourism-based economy.However, at what cost? he said, noting it would be the largest publicly funded stadium project in the nation ever.The Nevada Taxpayers Association opposes the plan, questioning how the bonds would be repaid during an economic downturn and adding theres no evidence publicly funded stadiums ever benefit taxpayers. Nevadans for the Common Good, a coalition of churches and other faith-based groups, opposes the plan.The public is being asked to shoulder all these risks, while the billionaires benefit, said Pastor Marta Poling Schmitt. The Culinary Union is also against the proposal.Ratti said she worries about the use of general obligation bonds to back the deal. She also shares concerns expressed by county Commission Chairwoman Kitty Jung that some Washoe County voters have a misconception theyd pay higher taxes under the current plan.At this point, this would not affect Washoe County taxpayers in the least, Jung said. But it does affect perception.----AP Writer Michelle Rindels contributed to this report from Las Vegas Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
