DETROIT (AP) – Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand says the team has unwavering and strong support for a bill about concussions that is making its way before Michigan legislators.

Lewand promoted the benefits of Senate Bill 1122, which would require youth sports organizations and schools to adopt concussion-awareness guidelines.

It’s already a requirement in 35 states.

Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville calls it a common-sense approach and says the legislation will be on the floor this week.
