Sports related concussions are in the national spotlight more than ever. There are as many as 3.8 million concussions that occur every year in professional, college, and youth sports. Approximately 85% of them will go undiagnosed, and that, of course, could lead to even more serious injuries.
Drew Brees, the New Orleans Saints quarterback and Super Bowl champion, wants to make a difference. He's teaming up with Dick's Sporting Goods to provide free testing to try to determine whether a kid has suffered a concussion.
This morning on "Starting Point," Brees talks with Soledad on the PACE program, which stands for Protecting Athletes through Concussion Education. He explains why he felt it was important to get involved in educating young athletes on the dangers of concussions.
