The NFL Players Association has created a medical guide for players, a 107-page reference book written by scientific professionals with extensive material on concussion detection, treatment and the league’s game-day protocol for head injuries.
The union’s inaugural health playbook was distributed electronically to NFLPA members this week.
The Dolphins simply do not have money to spend. They will enter the new league year $8.6 million over the salary cap after placing the franchise tag on wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

Tight end Julius Thomas and linebacker Lawrence Timmons are reportedly on the chopping block.

You gave this a go once before. You were young and tried to make it work with the biggest loser in the NFL. But it’s five years later. You’ve matured. You’ve gained valuable life and career experience. You’re a success — and you’re ready to try this again. In the big city, too!

Fournier said Magic players in a late-game huddle stressed the need to keep up the defensive effort.
“We were kind of like, OK, not again,” Fournier. “That kind of changed the momentum. We went into overtime knowing we were going to execute and play good defense and we did.”
The Magic could have won it in regulation. Fournier drilled a 3-pointer that gave Orlando a 104-102 lead with 47 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
The Pistons tied it when Griffin got a long rebound and found Ennis for a breakaway dunk that tied the game at 104 with seven seconds left.
