INDIANAPOLIS | The brother of late Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson endorsed a plan Friday that would require all Indiana youth football coaches be trained in detecting and preventing concussions, but also urged state lawmakers studying the issue not to ignore other youth sports.
I would be just as happy not to recall the one-year anniversary this month of old friend and former Notre Dame and Bears strong safety Dave Duerson.
In the aftermath of former Notre Dame defensive coordinator Corwin Brown shooting himself in the torso 10 days ago, I closed last week's column with the following speculation:
BOSTON | Dave Duerson, a former NFL player who committed suicide in February, had "moderately advanced" brain damage related to blows to the head, according to the researcher who made the diagnosis.
NEW YORK | Blindside hits to the head are down in the NHL, yet concussions are up. Now general managers have to decide if more rules are needed to make pro hockey safer.
Dave Duerson rode the roller-coaster of life, hands raised in the air at its apex, then covering his head. There was much of the latter in recent years for the former Bears' safety and two-time Super Bowl winner.
Dave Duerson, a four-time Pro Bowl safety who played on Super Bowl winners with the Bears and New York Giants, has died. He was 50.
