Bernie Kosar held a press conference yesterday in the wake of the Seau report in which he discussed his own problems with brain trauma, which have included ringing and buzzing in his head, insomnia, and slurred speech (anyone who has seen Bernie - who is the salt of the earth, AFAIK - do a football game has heard him sound like he was drunk). He said that used to have smelling salts with him on the field at times so that he could get through games and that he sometimes called running plays to give him time to get his head straight.
Anyway, what makes this story different from any others that I've seen is that Kosar reports that he's receiving successful treatment for his head injuries. Kosar and his doctor report that Bernie's PET scans are showing improvement thanks to treatment that increases blood flow to the brain, and Kosar says he feels twenty years younger. The doctor won't say much about the way the treatment is administered, though, and he sounds a little sketchy, but I thought this was at least an interesting claim (and it's likely to be a slow day on the board).
