NFL to Officials: Call 'Injury Timeouts' if Player Looks Hurt--Even if He's Walking Back to Huddle

The NFL reportedly is instructing its officials to "call injury timeouts even if a player is upright and walking back to the huddle, if that player appears to be injured."

According to ProFootballTalk, NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino said "that the league office tells officials to call injury timeouts any time they believe a player should be checked by the medical staff."

“If you notice a player that’s in distress, a player that’s injured, or a potential injury... we’re telling our game officials to look for this type of reaction from a player and stop the game and get him out of the game,” Blandino said in a video.
