Teams to be briefed on new guidelines

By Jimmy Smith/The Times-Picayune

Former Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert recalls a time when he was playing in Atlanta behind the oft-injured Chris Miller.

Miller, who once suffered five concussions in a 14-month span, was shopping at a suburban Atlanta grocery store when panic set in.
