What Can You Do to Help an Injured Teammate?

With a lot of athletes who are eager to go back in the game and want to be tough and they want to play through injury, they may minimize the injury. So, you've got to make sure that you're taking care of your teammates sometimes; that if you notice they're acting funny or they're not remembering things that you say to the coach or somebody else that they need to be taken out.

If you see a teammate acting differently or strangely, tell your coach immediately. You might just save his life.
