Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had stage 2 CTE, a form of brain degeneration that has been found in other athletes, his family said.
Jackson’s family revealed the diagnosis in a statement Thursday, 10 months after he was found dead in a hotel room outside Tampa, Florida.
“Vincent dedicated so much of his life to helping others. Even in his passing, I know he would want to continue that same legacy,” said his widow, Lindsey Jackson.
Jackson’s family said researchers diagnosed him with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, also known as CTE. The disorder, which is likely to be caused by repetitive head trauma, has been found in the brains of people who played football and other contact sports.
Little is known about CTE, which is linked to mood disorders, including depression, aggression, impulsive behavior, memory loss and other cognitive impairment, according to the Mayo Clinic.
