NFL, NFLPA to prohibit 10 helmet models from being used

NFL, NFLPA to prohibit 10 helmet models from being used NFL, NFLPA to prohibit 10 helmet models from being used

Around 200 players wore helmets last season that now would be prohibited, according to Jeff Miller, the NFL's executive vice president of health and safety initiatives.

After a series of laboratory tests, the NFL and NFL Players Association announced Monday that 10 different helmet models will be banned, including the ones used by All-Pro quarterbacks Tom Brady, of the New England Patriots, and Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints.

'We think that is an important move, and we think that will improve player health and safety.

However, the 10 prohibited helmets have either been discontinued by their manufacturer or were made by companies that no longer produce football helmets. The phase-out of all 10 helmets will be complete in 2019, meaning Brady will no longer be allowed to wear his current helmet model after the upcoming 2018 season.

The decision was based on the latest annual laboratory tests used to assess helmets, from best-to-worst performing.

"The goal of the study, as in prior years, was to determine which helmets best reduced head impact severity under laboratory conditions simulating concussion-causing impacts sustained by NFL players during games", the statement by the league and union said.

The tests were developed by biomechanical engineering experts to provide more information for players making helmet choices, although factors such as fit, comfort and durability were also given as considerations in helmet selection.

According to ESPN, thirty-four helmets were tested for safety, and 10 helmets that finished at the bottom of the rankings were listed as prohibited.

It comes after a season in which players suffered 281 concussions - the highest on record.

The details of enforcement of the rule, hailed by National Football League rule-makers as a significant change created to take players' use of the helmet as a weapon out of the sport, are being worked out and are to be completed at next month's meeting of the owners in Atlanta.
