NFL officials announced Tuesday that three players have been fined for helmet hits this past Sunday and, beginning this week, players can be suspended for violent tackles where their helmet makes contact with an opponent's helmet.
DeSean Jackson of the Eagles was hurt in a second quarter collision with Atlanta's Dunta Robinson in Sunday's NFL matchup. A pair of Cleveland Browns were also injured Sunday by helmet-to-helmet hits in their game with the Steelers.
Football gear is becoming increasingly high tech, with plans for more advanced post-game analysis, improved helmet technology, and even a sensor embedded in the ball that confirms when it crosses the goal line. Will technology get in the way of the game?
