Timeout, guys. State lawmakers want to make some changes to football practice.
Full-contact practices among teenagers would be limited during the season and banned the rest of the year under a bill that's now headed to Gov. Jerry Brown.
It was penned by Democratic Assemblyman Ken Cooley of Rancho Cordova with the goal of reducing concussions.
The full-contact practices would be limited to two per week and any athlete who sustained a head injury would have to complete a supervised process that lasts at least a week.
Some Republicans argued the changes would put high schoolers at a disadvantage when it comes to college recruiting.
