Two deceased CFL players who donated their brains to science both suffered from the brain disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, new test results reveal.
The brains of former Toronto Argonaut and Hamilton Tiger-Cat Bobby Kuntz, and former Ottawa Rough Rider Jay Roberts, both showed signs of CTE.
Both had donated their brains to the Canadian Sports Concussion Project, which is part of the Krembil Neuroscience Centre at Toronto Western Hospital. The centre released the results of the testing on Tuesday.
Kuntz and Roberts both suffered repeated concussions during their football careers.
