No Pads? Big Problem

NFL executive Merton Hanks announced this week that players who don't wear knee and thigh pads will be banned from games this season. Last year, the NFL passed a new rule cracking down on players who failed to follow protocol. The idea is that the padding will help limit serious leg injuries as well as concussions caused when a player's knee and thigh collide with an opponent's helmet. (Photo: National Football League)
