NFL players and U.S. soldiers have been meeting to discuss concussions, and plan to get together frequently in the future.

Current players such as Arizona star receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Cleveland All-Pro tackle Joe Thomas got together last Friday at the Pentagon with former players and coaches, league medical personnel and representatives from the U.S. Army and Marines. The NFL expects to have military members attend team training camps beginning in late July to further exchange ideas.

Players will attend military bases in the future to discuss concussions, as well.

The cooperation between players and soldiers was initiated from several trips Commissioner Roger Goodell has taken with military personnel.
