      Doctors suggest new guidelines for athletic concussions

      (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Doctors have now released new guidelines on how athletes should deal with sports-related concussions.

      The American Academy of Neurology says any athlete showing signs of a concussion should be immediately taken out of a game and not return until a doctor gives the OK.

      Teenaged and younger athletes should be managed even more conservatively, because their brains are still developing.

      Research shows that athletes who have a history of concussions are at greater risk for having another.
