Members of the House Judiciary Committee have criticized the NFL’s methods of research into the safety measures taken with its equipment, particularly helmets.
The committee held a forum this week during which it also expressed dissatisfaction with how the league is handling traumatic head injuries to retired players.
Committee chairwoman Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., and Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., questioned Dr. Richard Ellenbogen and Dr. Hunt Batjer, the co-chairmen of the NFL’s head, neck and spine medical committee.
