Sports can keep children healthy and productive, but they can also come with risks. There's a new push in Washington, D.C., to keep kids safe on the field.

KSTP takes a deeper look at why the concussion discussion is so important for parents, coaches and athletes.

Dr. Alex Noll, a medical orthopedics and sports medicine expert from TRIA Orthopaedic Center in Minneapolis, stopped by KSTP to discuss what goes into preventing concussions for all kinds of sports.
