NFL players’ cancer care costs are soaring: Study

By ALAN KARLAPANEWICZPublished Feb 06, 2017 07:17:03As the NFL season kicks off, the players who play the game have an important role to play.

The game’s biggest players can play a role in the care of their own health.

For one of the game’s best running backs, a new study finds that cancer treatment costs are skyrocketing.

According to a study published in the journal Cancer, players’ treatment costs jumped by more than 1,000 percent during the 2017 season.

The study looked at players who participated in four seasons of the NFL in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons.

Players who participated were not required to disclose the fact that they had cancer.

The research, conducted by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, found that player health costs rose by an average of 8,788 percent from 2016 to 2018.

Players were found to be more likely to experience increased costs after a new diagnosis than players who played a year earlier.

Players who played in a year later were found at greater risk of suffering complications after a diagnosis.

The study found that more than 70 percent of those diagnosed with cancer were found by their second year to have a significant cost increase.

For the first time in the study, the researchers were able to calculate a baseline value of $1,500 per year for players’ care and treatment.

A baseline value is the cost per year of a player who is not a starter or reserve.

The average cost per game was $2,918, the study found.

The researchers said the findings are important because the game provides players with a significant amount of personal care.

“For players who are going to spend time in hospital, and who are at a higher risk for death from the disease, this is a significant concern,” said study co-author Dr. James O’Connor, who heads the university’s Center for Chronic Disease, Injury and Rehabilitation.

“We are seeing the effect of this cost increase on players’ overall health, and this is impacting the way they choose to care for themselves.”

The researchers are hopeful that the study will help guide players’ choices for their own care and health, which is important for players who want to maintain their status as the best running back in the league.

The NFLPA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
