Dallas Cowboys great Tony Dorsett confirmed Wednesday that he has been diagnosed with having signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative condition that scientists have linked to depression and dementia, reports the Dallas Morning News.



“It hit me like a ton of bricks,” said the Pro Football Hall of Fame running back, confirming an ESPN Outside the Lines report that he and two other former NFL players were diagnosed with CTE after three months of brain scans and clinical testing at UCLA.

“Not a good thing,” said Dorsett, 59. “I’m looking at ESPN, and it [the news] is rolling across the ticker tape.”
