Clint Session Seems Resigned To His Possible Post-NFL Fate

Clint Session of the Jacksonville Jaguars suffered two concussions in the same game against the Cleveland Browns last November which knocked him out for the season. In a recent interview with The Florida Times-Union, Session cited his desire to "win" and "contribute" as a major factor for hiding his injury from the team.

Brain injury and concussions have been a major topic of discussion around the NFL of late. With many former players suffering from CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) and taking their own lives in some of the most severe cases. As a result, the league has taken a very serious and aggressive approach to protecting their athletes at all costs.

But despite their prevention attempts, their hands are tied if the player hides his injury like Sessions did. The saddest part of all is that if CTE is a part of his life after football, it's something he seems to have already accepted:

Does he worry that he might meet the same fate as former players as young as in their 40s and 50s suffering the consequences of brain injuries?

"I think that is probably something that is already probably going to happen," Session said. "I can't control that. Probably Too late for that right there."
