NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to 44 governors asking them to pass a law to protect young athletes from concussions. Washington state has already passed such a law. Goodell's letter will be part of Dr. Richard Ellenbogen's testimony at Rep. John Conyers' forum on concussions in New York City. Ellenbogen treated Zackery Lystedt, a Washington student who suffered brain damage after returning too soon from a concussion to play middle school football. His story led to the state passing "Lystedt's Law" which prevents young athletes from returning to the field too soon.
