Joe Namath Says He Has “Brain Damage”


The sad thing is that people will read the title, and do there best not to laugh or make a joke about this.

Namath is the latest former NFL player who has admitted the concussions he suffered during his career have had negative, long-lasting effects.

Namath told “CBS Sunday Morning” in an upcoming interview head injuries sustained during his playing career have adversely affected his health.

“I’ve been [through some] things medically,” he told CBS’ Rita Braver. “I’ve seen some things on my brain. But I’ve had some treatment — and improved.”

Namath added the sport is not natural for humans to play.

“None of the body was designed to play football,” he said. “Excuse me, you know, football, we’re just not designed for.”
