The NFL has begun an investigation into an accusation alleging that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston sexually assaulted an Uber driver while in Arizona last year. The victim said he groped her crotch while they waited for food at a drive-thru.
A recent study looked at the donated brains of former football players including professional, semi-professional, collegiate, and high school athletes. Researchers found a change in the brains of former NFL players, known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE. CTE is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain. Researchers found that of the 202 brains studied, nearly 88 percent of them had CTE. The results were more pronounced among former NFL players.
