Bernie Kosar Suffering From Traumatic Brain Injuries From Repeated Concussions
Surprised I couldn't find this anywhere in the Browns forum, I know a handful of veteran posters here had laughed at or made fun of Bernie's speech, most recently in December when he was incoherent on the radio, sounded drunk and was booted off...
It seems he is one of the victims of repeated concussions resulting in traumatic brain injuries, specifically his frontal lobe, which controls speech and motor function, apparently he's been receiving good treatment and is optimistic things will improve, its just sad to see one of the Browns greats, at least fan favorites, being mocked by Browns fans who didn't truly understand what he was going through...
I'll admit I had no idea how bad it was, he sounded drunk, due to recent lawsuits and information coming out about brain injuries, the thought popped in my head due to the amount of concussions he had, but I didn't know it was this bad...truly saddening and here's to hoping that the treatment works and his health greatly improves!
