| Derailed by concussions, Collie scores in CFL debutThe K-D Test is a sideline concussion screening examination based on eye-movement that is being used in regular-season CFL games in addition to the established sideline concussion examination. During a K-D Test sideline exam, a player suspected of having suffered head trauma reads single-digit numbers displayed on cards or on a tablet computer to test eye movement. The player's response time is then compared to his preseason baseline time.The K-D Test, in addition to a full medical evaluation, will help diagnose a concussion that subsequently would remove a player from play, the leagues said. The Night net will contribute funding to help determine whether the K-D Test, a two-minute exam, improves the ability to diagnose concussions.
