(SACRAMENTO BEE) Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legislation limiting full-contact football practice for California teenagers, his office announced Monday.

The legislation comes amid increasing concern about brain injuries in football.

Assembly Bill 2127, by Assemblyman Ken Cooley, D-Rancho Cordova, prohibits middle school and high school football teams from holding full-contact practices during the off-season and limits them to no more than two full-contact practices per week during the preseason and regular season.
