BOSTON (AP) - NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says football will evolve and get safer.

Speaking to a packed auditorium at the Harvard School of Public Health, Goodell said the league will do what it needs to do to protect the safety of its 1,800 players.

Goodell discussed some of the rules that have been created to limit concussions. He says they are working, and there will be more changes as necessary.

The commissioner also noted Thursday that concussions are a problem in all sports and in the military.

The speech comes as the NFL faces lawsuits by thousands of former players who say the league withheld information on the harmful effects concussions can have on their health.
