On Friday, Ian Beckles dives into the issue of CTE among football players with Brandi Winans, who knows this experience firsthand. She was married to former Buccaneer Jeff Winans, and tells Jeff's story from the beginning to his unnatural regression. After his passing, doctors later discovered Winans had CTE, something Brandi had suspected since seeing a lot of the signs that were mentioned in a 2007 Real Sports feature on Dr. Chris Nowinski, one of the pioneers of identifying CTE. Brandi has done lots of work trying to help NFL retirees cope with some of these issues. To learn more about this topic, if you're a former player or family member, go to concussionfoundation.org.
