Concussion law awaits Gov. Snyder's signature

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (WNEM) -

Governor Snyder soon will sign a new bill that will safeguard high school student athletes who suffer concussions.

The bill will require coaches to immediately remove an athlete from practice or a game if a concussion is suspected.

The player could only return when cleared by a doctor.

The measure was approved by the state house last week.

The Detroit Lions and the National Football League are major proponents of the legislation.
