Former Bronco Larry Kaminski Will Donate Brain For Medical Study

While the NFL is still dealing with the lockout, the league was sued earlier this week by 75 former players, as TMZ originally reported. The players contend that the league has known about the harmful effects of concussions for ninety years, but has kept this hidden from the players until 2010. All the players claim that they have suffered damage from the effects of multiple concussions.

One of the 75 players includes former Denver Broncos center Larry Kaminski. According to a family member who spoke with TMZ, Kaminski has pledged his brain to the Boston University School of Medicine Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy to help further understand the effects of concussions. TMZ reports that Kaminski, 66, suffers from depression as a result.

Kaminski was the starting center for the Broncos for most of his career, which began in 1966 and ended in 1973. He was named to the 1967 Pro Bowl.
