A survey of major college football trainers by the Chronicle of Higher Education has found that more than 40 percent of them have been pressured by coaches to "return an athlete to the field even after he suffered a concussion." That's just one tidbit from the Chronicle's wide-ranging report on the often-fractious relationship between trainers and coaches at the NCAA's highest level of play. (CBS Sports)
