DETROIT (AP) -- The NCAA's director of health and safety says the governing body is considering a rule change that would allow football officials to remove players from games if they show signs of a concussion.
Dr. David Klossner divulged the proposal Monday in response to a question from Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., during the House Judiciary Committee hearing on the legal issues related to football head injuries.
Klossner was asked if the NCAA would react to what happened with fired Texas Tech coach Mike Leach and player Adam James. Cohen said James should've been sent to get medical help and not to a shed when he had a concussion.
Leach has denied he mistreated James, son of former NFL player and ESPN analyst Craig James.
