Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw admitted Monday he’s having short-term memory loss and a loss of hand-eye coordination due to the many concussions he’s sustained during his career.
Bradshaw, 62, a Shreveport, La., native, said he is undergoing rehabilitation.
“I forgot the numbers. It’s pretty staggering,” the former Pittsburgh Steelers star said. “If you play in the NFL and start for 10 years, it’s not good. It is not good.”
Bradshaw, a current NFL analyst, who is an integral part of Fox’s Sports’ pre-game and post-game coverage, was somber as he told reporters about his situation.
The usually upbeat Bradshaw told KTBS-TV that he has suffered at least six concussions through the years, plus an unknown number of instances where there was a blow to the head that would require him to “clear the cobwebs.”
