This is a true tragedy. However, I believe the case is pretty old. Wondering why it is being re-reported now.

It happened in 2011 but is being highlighted in view of the increasing recognition of the dangers of concussion. The bottom line is that the last people you can rely on to say whether they're ok or not is the players themselves - been there, done that on a couple of occasions myself.
