Football is America's most popular sport. In recent years, a growing body of evidence has shown that concussions, especially repeat concussions that may occur in high impact sports, can lead to devastating brain injury. This has been shown to be true not only in professional athletes, but in children as well.

Fortunately, popular media is catching on and shining light on the topic of sports concussions and the long term affects in athletes who sustain repeat concussions. This article highlights a new documentary that explores this topic, titled "Head Games," which is directed by the director of the popular sports documentary, "Hoop Dreams."

This documentary comes on the heels of a new study revealing that while football fatalities are down, traumatic brain injuries in football are on the rise.
