Frontline to tackle NFL’s traumatic brain injury problem

Just in time for the start of the 2013-2014 NFL season, PBS’ long-running Frontline (in tandem with ESPN’s Outside The Lines) will open its 32nd season with an episode on traumatic brain injuries in football. It’s not just a matter of grim reflection, or an academic subject, however. With more comprehensive, modern scientific data on CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) now on offer, thousands of former players are taking on the NFL for allegedly concealing knowledge of the scope and grisliness of the problem. Indeed, the question raised at the end of the above trailer, on how prevalent these injuries may be, is a worthy one — researchers at Boston University, back in January, had found evidence of CTE in 33 of the 34 brains of NFL players they studied. source
