The NFL records hundreds of concussions a year. So this year, they tested a new, safer helmet in the pre-season. The Guardian Caps go over traditional helmets and offer an additional level of safety. They’re already being used at many colleges and high schools. While the league mandated certain positions practice in them in the pre-season, it’s now up to individual players to decide if they want to continue with them.
