What’s a serious emergency?
How does a hospital prepare for and treat a serious situation?
And how can a hospital help a child or teen who is in need?
These questions and more were addressed during an NFL pregame news conference for the Houston Texans on Tuesday night.
It was a rare opportunity for NFL media to ask the players about the importance of having the right doctors, and how the NFL can better prepare and help parents.
The answer, according to a lot of players, was “yes.”
One player said, “We are so focused on the game and what is happening in the game, but we are just so focused and focused on what’s happening in our lives, and our families, and the children, that sometimes things go on in our heads, and we just can’t see the bigger picture.
And it’s just like you can’t really tell, ‘Oh, I’m a doctor.
They talked about how some players are taking medication and doing other activities to help improve their mental state. “
The Texans also discussed how the team and the NFL have made strides in tackling the issue of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and other brain injuries, including concussions.

“When your child is going through a scary situation like that, it’s very hard. “

“When your child is going through a scary situation like that, it’s very hard.
And so you know, you just have to find ways to be there for them and support them.”
There were also questions about how much money it costs for the NFL to treat a player.
A team spokesperson said the average NFL player is reimbursed for $1,000 in hospitalization expenses, $1.25 in doctor bills, and $750 in prescriptions for blood pressure medication, cholesterol medications, and pain medication.
The NFL has paid for the testing and evaluation of about 3,200 players since the beginning of the season.
The Houston Texans, who lost their first four games of the 2016 season to a rash of injuries and suspensions, will host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
