Former Broncos running back Terrell Davis says the prospect of living with CTE symptoms is something that worries him, ESPN reports.
But Davis, speaking Friday on the eve of his Hall of Fame induction in Canton, Ohio, said he has hope for the future of football because of the “great lengths” the game has gone to change.
“I can’t lie, we’re all scared,” Davis said, according to The Denver Post. “We’re concerned because we don’t know what the future holds. When I’m at home and I do something, if I forget something I have to stop to think, ‘Is this because I’m getting older or I’m just not using my brain, or is this an effect of playing football?’ I don’t know that.”
Davis is among five modern-era players who will be inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
“Yeah, I’m scared, so I try to stay as active as possible, keep my mind as sharp as possible,” Davis said, according to The Post. “But I also know the game has gone through great lengths to change, from Pop Warner to college.”
