That protocol has been widely criticised for not doing enough to protect players, some of whom have played on despite being potentially concussed.

Temporary concussion substitutes, however, would see the player removed for a more thorough examination in private lasting up to 15 minutes. 

If he passes the checks, he can then return to the field of play. If not, his substitution turns permanent.

Players would be allowed 15 minutes of examination before it is determined whether they can rejoin the action
