Smith was asked whether NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL team owners are adequately addressing the concussion issue. He said, “My job is to never be satisfied about where we are with the issue of players' health. ...

We need to move to a world where if our player is hurt, he gets treated” (“CBS This Morning,” 1/29).
