They released the results of Aaron Hernandez's autopsy and he had stage 3 CTE, with stage 4 being the worst. He was 24 when he went to jail, so I'm surprised to see it so advanced in someone that young. Of the 111 former players they've tested, 110 had CTE. It's unfortunate that they can only verify it with an autopsy. This doesn't excuse his behavior as he has always been a thug. But his family is suing the NFL. If I had a son wanting to play ball, I'd think hard about not allowing it. There are several former Titans that are having serious problems that are probably related to CTE.
