Jeff Miller, the NFL's senior vice president of health and safety policy, spoke to the Associated Press.

According to The MMQB reporter Albert Breer, Tom Brady and Drew Brees are among the players who have worn a helmet now on the prohibited list.

Ten different helmets have been banned for use, starting in 2018.

However, the 10 prohibited helmets have either been discontinued by their manufacturer or were made by companies that no longer produce football helmets.

Six helmets were immediately prohibited, while four of them were still allowed only for players that used them in the 2017 season and are prohibited for new players.

The goal of the study was to determine how helmets perform in the area of reduced head impact severity.

"Over the last few years we've seen some dynamic changes in the helmet industry, both from new innovators as well as new helmets and models from incumbent companies", Miller said.

There's going to be battles, there's going to be swings of momentum , but the big thing for me is who won the game". Lightning RW Ryan Callahan left the game late in the second period with an upper body injury and did not return.

'We think that is an important move, and we think that will improve player health and safety.

"The objective of the continuation to rank helmets and the joint decision with the players' association to prohibit is to increase that movement into better performing helmets". Others were found to be inferior to numerous 34 helmets the National Football League and the players' union examined.

The banned after 2018 models included Brady's Riddell VSR-4 helmet, although the 40-year-old victor of five Super Bowls has the opportunity to test other helmets under game conditions this season also. In fact, the 2017 model actually finished second in the rankings.

The NFL has been ranking helmets based on laboratory testing, for four years. Within that, the Vicis Zero1 has a hard inner layer and padding structure that can be adjusted to fit individual players' heads.

Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, said in a 2017 interview that the quarterback had unreported concussions and she anxious about his long-term health. Helmets are ranked on how they "manage the forces" that players most often come into contact with, he added.

Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, a five-time Pro Bowler and 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, announced on Instagram he is retiring following a 15-year career.
