NFL May Mandate Heart Ultrasounds

CHICAGO–In the wake of
Gaines Adams' death of a cardiac arrest Jan. 17, the National Football League (NFL) may mandate an
ultrasound of the heart at next month's NFL Combine. But NFL Players
Association medical director Thom Mayer warned the decision would not be an
indication of regret and insisted the use of echocardiograms have been
discussed for several years.

"It takes my
breath away," Mayer told the Sun-Times when asked about Adams' death.
"I've got kids of my own, his age, so anytime you hear that one of your
own is gone, it's devastating.

"But it
doesn't mean it was a mistake (not to mandate echocardiograms) up to this
point."
