After eighteen years as the team physician for the National Football League's Seattle Seahawks, Dr. Pierce Scranton describes the frenzied world of treating injured professional athletes while also coping with team owners, general managers, head coaches, and agents. Scranton discusses the current medical issues in pro football, from the league's steroids policy to the debate about grass versus turf, plus he offers a detailed look at how physicians help their teams evaluate college players before the NFL draft.
