The article "Brain Injuries in Sports" has some data on the comparative risk of concussion in various sports. (http://www.headbraininjuries.com/brain-injuries-sports)
The article "Concussion Management in Organizaed Sports" also gives guidelines for how long an athlete should stay on the sidelines after a head injury. (http://www.headbraininjuries.com/concussion-management-sports)


It actually IS important that a recently concussed individual not sleep for prolonged periods, especially during the first 12 hours. If you suffer a concussion, make that sure that you have someone who can wake you up every 2 or 3 hours to make sure that your symptoms have not worsened.
