Football season kicks off, and with that, we begin our show with a discussion about the NCAA's research on the kickoff rule change and its impact on concussion rates in collegiate football. Despite the expectation that this rule change would reduce concussions during kickoff plays, the data suggests otherwise. We explore the many reasons behind this unexpected outcome and its implications for player safety in the sport.

The Q-Collar is a biomedical engineering innovation designed to reduce brain injury risks. This FDA-authorized device of its kind, works by increasing blood volume inside the head to reduce the brain's movement upon impact, ultimately decreasing the risk of concussions, and has the potential to revolutionize player safety in contact sports. Will we see even more players utilizing this tech this season?

Don’t laugh but it’s true. We explore the fascinating concept of urinals with sensors that change color based on player hydration levels in the Jacksonville Jaguars' facilities. This cutting-edge technology has the potential to optimize player performance and health. Even though Dr. Garcia was not a fan of this discussion. Ha!

The Seahawks lead the NFL in miles traveled but does distance and additional games add to more injuries? A study from Northwestern University might surprise you.

Do you want bad picks for the NFL season? We have them. Will Dr. Garcia get this show's trivia? Have a listen and check it out. If you would like a transcript of the show, want to be a guest, or just want more information about Sports Doc Talk. Check us out at
