Kenny Stabler had CTE Brain Disease

Doctors found severe lesions on his brain

The late Alabama and NFL Football great Kenny Stabler had severe CTE when he died last Summer, reports the New York Times (paywall) in a story posted this morning.


““He had moderately severe disease,” said Dr. Ann McKee, chief of neuropathology at the V.A. Boston Healthcare System and a professor of neurology and pathology at Boston University School of Medicine, who conducted the examination. “Pretty classic. It may be surprising since he was a quarterback, but certainly the lesions were widespread, and they were quite severe, affecting many regions of the brain.”
