HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans are partnering with a neurological institute to help raise awareness about concussions.
Quarterback Matt Schaub was on hand Wednesday as the initiative between the Methodist Concussion Center in Houston and the Texans was announced. The pairing will include outreach programs aimed at trainers, coaches and parents of youth and school-aged athletes.
Schaub, who suffered a concussion in 2007, says it is "vital" to educate students and parents about the dangers of concussions and how to diagnose and treat them.
Earlier this week, the NFL said it was donating $1 million for the study of brain injuries to Boston University School of Medicine.
