Default Repeated Concussions Linked to Lou Gehrig's Disease

It appears that there has now been a link established between repeated concusions and and the devastating and so far unstoppable Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS). One more reason to be serious about addressing the issue in the NFL. The NFL, because of these new findings are considering aid to former NFL players with this diagnosis.

Did concussions play role in Lou Gehrig's disease?

Did Glenn Montgomery have a history of concussions?

There is no doubt, if you followed his career.........he was a tough little mutha.

McClain from the Chronicle

Quote:
The Oilers used to fight in the offseason program when they didn't wear pads. I remember the first rookie camp for defensive tackle Glenn Montgomery, who played at the University of Houston. Glenn, who died of ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease, was as tough as anyone I've ever seen.

Because Montgomery was barely 6 foot tall, he was always having to prove himself. He got in more fights before his first rookie training camp than anyone I've covered. I remember in an offseason drill in which the players were wearing shorts and T-shirts, Montgomery bloodied Mike Munchak's nose with a punch. That took a lot of guts - to take on the perennial Pro Bowl guard who was destined for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But it did get the coaches attention, and Montgomery became part of one of the NFL's best defensive lines with Ray Childress, William Fuller and Sean Jones.

It would be interesting if Steve Young and Troy Aikman would volunteer for annual neurological evaluations. Those guys are definitely "high risk".

Lou Gehrig went to Columbia on a football scholarship and played fullback. I'm guessing he might have received a concussion or two with the stellar headgear they had back then.
