The Premier League has revealed in a breaking story published by the BBC that they will put special replacements for concussions into practice from January.

Head injuries to footballers have become a hot topic in recent seasons, with strict guidelines being introduced to ensure players do not continue to play with concussions.

Concussions, while often conceived as a minor accident, can in the short and long term, have significant adverse effects on the sufferer. This is a necessary action by the forces at hand.

The BBC notes that trials of extra replacements will be in use from January for teams that have a player with a suspected concussion. Opposition teams would still be willing at the same time to make a move.

They look like they’ve covered all the bases here, and they have. For a concussion, there will be no further hesitation to pull players, with the extra replacement ensuring that it’s not a handicap.

There is also no risk that this rule will be violated by the opposing team since they will be able to make a move at the same time regardless of whether they have an injured man, as the BBC article points out.
