Montador’s sad tale is too familiar
The findings weren’t exactly startling. If you read enough reports and spoke to enough experts, a disturbing pattern emerged. The greater shock this week would have been doctors finding no evidence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in Steve Montador’s brain, not confirming they did.
Montador’s name officially has been added to a growing list of former athletes who suffered multiple concussions, experienced erratic behavior and depression, died young and had CTE show up in their autopsies. Others will endure similar problems and follow him to the grave. Yes, sadly, there will be more.
