Ex-Bears LB Doug Buffone Another Likely Victim of CTE
We will know in the near future whether Doug suffered from CTE. The disease only can be diagnosed in deceased victims, and the process of determination is careful and slow. But we will know.
And, in this journalist’s opinion, at least, the verdict seems certain. After three years of varsity ball at Louisville, 14 years and 186 games in the NFL (all for the Bears), more than 1,200 tackles — many executed with a single-bar, old-school helmet — it would be a shock if Doug didn’t have CTE.
