Ph.D. Candidate & Ravens Lineman John Urschel Retires At The Age of 26 After CTE Study
Former NFL DT Brian Price Runs Through Glass Door, Can’t Remember Because CTE (VIDEO)
This is scary.
After being drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft, Brian Price spent four seasons in the league before being released and spending a season in the Arena Football League. After failing to make the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014, Price has been out of football. However, the effects of playing the game all those years are apparently still taking a toll on him.
During a recent trip to an auto parts store in Ypsilanti, Michigan, cops had to be called to the scene after Price reportedly grew agitated and disruptive over something inside the store. Then, while speaking to officers outside, the former 35th overall pick decided to make a mad dash for the glass door at the front of the shop, crashing right through it, much to everyone’s disbelief.
Price was taken to a hospital for his injuries, and while there he told police that he didn’t remember the incident. Not surprisingly, the officers figured Price was on drugs, but that wasn’t the case. Rather, as his wife pointed out, the cause of his behavior and lack of memory was the result of CTE.
Here’s a look at the full story, via Local 4 Detroit:
This story comes just one day after it was revealed in a study that 99% of the brains examined from NFL players showed signs of CTE.
Simply put, this is bad news for the NFL, and it’s even worse news for the livelihood of its players.
