Pac-12 reveals health initiative for its athletes

The conference announced Monday morning a health initiative for what commissioner Larry Scott says is more than 7,000 student-athletes in the Pac-12, heavily centered on the major issue of concussions. Key part of the initiative will be “codifying” what Scott says are already-existing policies in the league on football contact, cumulative effect of which has been shown to be a factor in concussions.

Scott revealed few details on that front, saying that they’ll be announced at the July 26 football media day in Los Angeles. He made the comments on a 40-minute teleconference that wrapped up the year and the league’s summer meetings over the weekend in Park City, Utah.
