Dizziness, lightheadedness, wobbling off the field, having trouble concentrating or even just not feeling right are all possible warning signs.
After the game, headaches and balance issues are signs someone has suffered a concussion.
They may be hard to diagnose now, but researchers are working to develop better on-field balance tests, and even a blood test to tell right away if a young athlete has suffered a concussion.
