(STATEHOUSE) - The Indiana Senate approved a bill that would add protections for student athletes with concussions and require additional safety training for some coaches.

The Senate voted to keep high school athletes with suspected concussions off the field for at least 24 hours.

The legislation also would require high school football coaches and assistant coaches to receive training in player safety and head injuries.
