Over the last week, it was reported that Kosta Karageorge, the Ohio State defensive lineman who committed suicide last fall, did not have CTE.
In a statement, the Franklin County Coroner’s office said: “There is no evidence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy but there are nonspecific findings consistent with subacute to remote prior concussive injury.”
Karageorge had texted his mom just before his death about the debilitating effect that a concussion or multiple concussion was having on him.
Karageorge’s teammate Michael Bennett, a defensive tackle, told the wire service at the time that “we knew he had a lot of concussions and we were worried about that. But we didn’t see any side effects of it.”
