The rate of concussions among NFL players fell 25 percent this season, the league announced Thursday. However, injury reporting and trips to injured reserve list increased, per the Associated Press.
Data provided by the NFL stated there were 111 concussions in games during the 2014 regular season, down from 148 in 2013 and 173 in 2012, which is a 36 percent drop over the three-year span.
"Players are changing the way they're tackling," NFL senior vice president of health and safety policy Jeff Miller said. "They're changing the way they play the game."
A total of 59 concussions were caused by helmet-to-helmet or shoulder-to-helmet hits this season, which is almost exactly half as many as two years ago.
"With all the technological innovations that we've had over the past few years, I'm surprised the numbers keep going down,"
According to STATS, there were 265 players placed on injured reserve during the regular season in 2014, which was a 17 percent increase from the 226 in 2013.
The 2014 season was the first time NFL injury data was collected by all 32 teams through electronic medical records.

Andrew Leonard, chairman of the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Bureau, made the comment two days after the Rams switched to a year-to-year lease, enabling them to leave St. Louis in 2016.
"There's no question about it, they'd rather be in Los Angeles, in my mind," Leonard said.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke is planning an 80,000-seat domed stadium at the site of the defunct Hollywood Park racetrack in Inglewood, Calif.
A task force set up by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has countered with a proposal for a 64,000-seat, open-air stadium on the Mississippi River, with taxpayers footing as much as $405 million of the nearly $1 billion tab, the paper said.
It's not clear if the region's proposal could sway Kroenke to keep the team in St. Louis. The Rams will play the 2015 season downtown at the Edward Jones Dome, which opened in 1995.
Kroenke would need approval from 24 NFL owners to relocate.

It's still unclear if the Eagles would be willing to move Foles. NJ.com reported last week the Eagles, who have the 20th pick in the NFL Draft, are considering making a run at Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota in the draft.
"From No. 20, it's certainly not going to be easy,'' a source said. "It's probably going to take moving up twice to do it. There's going to be some wheeling and dealing involved.
"Can it happen? I don't know. But they're going to try."
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly recruited Mariota to Oregon and coached him for two years.
"Obviously, [with] my relationship with coach Kelly, it'd be a lot of fun to be a part of that offense and be a part of that team," Mariota said when asked about a potential reunion with Kelly.
Foles is 15-9 as a starter in the NFL, but he has yet to play a full season. He has completed 61.6 percent of his passes for 6,753 yards, 46 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
