Bradshaw: Concussions have caught up

Bradshaw: Concussions have caught up
Associated Press
April 12, 2011, 1:24AM


CHOUDRANT, La. — Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw says he's feeling the effects of numerous concussions sustained during his NFL career.

The 62-year-old Shreveport native said Monday he has been having short-term memory loss as well as the loss of hand-eye coordination. He also said he is undergoing rehabilitation for those ailments.

"I forgot the numbers. It's pretty staggering," Bradshaw said. "If you play in the NFL and start for 10 years, it's not good. It is not good."

The former Pittsburgh Steelers star and current NFL television analyst was in Louisiana at the Squire Creek Country Club on Monday to co-host, along with country singer Kix Brooks, his annual fundraising golf tournament to benefit their alma mater, Louisiana Tech.

The normally animated Bradshaw was somber as he told reporters of his condition.

Bradshaw told KTBS-TV that he sustained at least six concussions, plus an unknown number of instances where there was a blow to the head that would require him to "clear the cobwebs."

Bradshaw was the first player selected in the 1970 NFL draft, and led the Steelers to eight AFC Central championships and four Super Bowl titles from 1970-83.

He is now an integral part of Fox Sports' NFL pre-game and postgame coverage.

The one who is really going to feel this is going to be Troy Aikman. As many concussions as he's had he'd better be prepared for the future.
