The National Football League (NFL) Head, Neck and Spine Committee synthesized the current evidence for concussion diagnosis and management including the Berlin consensus statement and tailored it to the NFL. “One of the goals of the Committee is to provide a standardised, reliable, efficient and evidence-based protocol for concussion diagnosis and management that can be applied in this professional sport during practice and game day. In this article, the end-of-season version of the 2017-18 NFL Concussion Diagnosis and Management Protocol is described along with its clinical rationale. Immediate actions for concussion programme enhancement and research are reviewed.”
