The NFL is trying to convince Congress to change the rules for its players to protect them from concussive head injuries, including those that can result from head trauma.
The NFL has been trying to change its concussion protocol for a year, but there is no agreement on how much the NFL needs to do to make the change happen.
The issue is getting a lot of attention in Congress because players have been complaining about concussions for years, and some lawmakers are now calling for more transparency.
The NFLPA has filed a bill to require the NFL to put out a new concussions protocol by July 31, 2022.
The legislation also calls for the league to create an independent, bipartisan commission that would review concussion data and recommendations and make recommendations for changes.
The committee would also have authority to impose fines on any league officials who are found to be negligent in the implementation of the NFL’s concussion protocol.
But many experts think the committee won’t be able to get it done this year, or even the next.
The American Academy of Neurology and the American Academy for Occupational Therapy both say that it’s unlikely the committee will be able get to a final concussions report by July 2019, according to a report published this month in the American Journal of Psychiatry.
The report was authored by researchers from the University of California, San Diego, and Columbia University.
It recommends that the committee be convened in 2018 to review data from the NFL and NFLPA to help them decide how much they need to do.
They also recommend that the NFL conduct a feasibility study to determine how many players would be eligible for full compensation if the committee recommended changes.
It’s not clear when the committee would convene.
The bill does not mention when it would convenes, but the NFLPA is working on a proposal that could include a date in the middle of next year.
A report by the NFL released last month said the committee should have enough time to study the data, report its recommendations and develop a plan for implementation.
The study said it was not clear whether the committee could do that because there are so many variables that could impact how quickly the process could take place.
The committee is also in the process of developing a concussion protocol that would be able and legally binding.
The protocol would be released next year, according a draft of the proposal obtained by ESPN.
The proposal would be the most significant concussions policy change the NFL has ever put out.
But it’s not the only one the NFL is looking into.
The league has proposed an amendment to the Concussion Legacy and Illness Settlement Agreement that would force the NFL into a voluntary protocol that is voluntary and legally enforceable.
The proposed amendment was first reported by the Wall Street Journal in May, but has not yet been formally adopted.
