Santana Moss Discusses CTE Fears, Concussions and Memory Loss

Former New York Jets and Washington wide receiver Santana Moss appeared on Tuesday's episode of Practice Squad, which is hosted by Domonique Foxworth of The Undefeated, and discussed concussions and their aftermath. He said he has experienced memory loss since playing football and explained, "Before they diagnosed them as concussions, I've had concussions. Played with them." He also described a particular hit from Seattle Seahawks defensive back Kam Chancellor when he couldn't hear or see anything in the immediate aftermath, although he finished the rest of the contest. Moss granted it is "scary" as more information comes out about concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Foxworth wrote, "Moss alludes to the life-or-death stakes, saying he's not ready to meet the same fate of some of his peers: 'I'm not ready to go.'"               This article will be updated to provide more information on this story as it becomes available.
