Abstract

In the November Editorial, “Editorial: Do Orthopaedic Surgeons Belong on the Sidelines at American Football Games?” a statistic was attributed to a JAMA study (Ref. 10) that should have been attributed to an article from the New York Times (Ref. 16). The sentence in question should read: “We accept that critique, provided that the skeptics acknowledge that the best-case estimate in support of the safety of football would result in a CTE prevalence estimate of 9%, since only another 1200 ex-NFL players have died [16] since this research group [10] began studying football players’ brains.”.
