As another college football season is underway, the debate around concussion safety and treatment in the sport continues to escalate. Earlier this year, President Obama said that the NCAA needed to do more to protect its college football players who suffer concussions. Currently, the NCAA is involved in a lawsuit brought about by former college football players, who accuse the NCAA of not doing enough to protect its student-athletes. And there has yet to be any indication that the NCAA is close to implementing a standard policy for identifying and treating concussions that all of its member institutions can follow.

This season, America Tonight will be keeping track of all reported concussions in college football with the AT Concussion Map. Each marker represents a reported instance in which a player suffered a concussion. The markers are located are based off the city of each player's university. Click on the markers for the latest updates on those college football players who've suffered concussions during the 2013 season.
