"Over the last few years we've seen some dynamic changes in the helmet industry, both from new innovators as well as new helmets and models from incumbent companies", said Jeff Miller, the NFL's senior vice-president of health and safety policy. "We are encouraged this is an important step for better player safety".

The banned helmets either performed poorly in testing, have been discontinued, or were produced by companies that no longer manufacture football helmets, according to a release from the NFL.

Players who wore the prohibited helmets during the 2017 season will be allowed to continue to wear them in 2018 but not beyond that season.

Players previously were permitted to wear any helmet model of their choosing certified by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment.

NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL for the first time is prohibiting certain helmets from being worn by players. The other four models can still be used by players if worn in 2017. The phase-out of all 10 helmets will be complete in 2019, according to NFL.com's Tom Pelissero.

In notifying the 32 teams Monday, the league has sought to have players stop using 10 helmet varieties.
