Default Wider NFL football fields?

Could there be an NFL field change on the horizon? With all the concern lately about concussions and various injuries with so many NFL players, it's being rumored that a field change may be ahead.

According to the inquisitr, the league may be considering expanding the width of the field from 160 feet to 195 feet from sideline-to-sideline. The extra 35 feet would make the width the same measurements that the Canadian Football League uses and league officials believe that it could make football a safer game.
