Ohio State football player showed no signs of a brain disease - coroner

On Friday a report by the coroner revealed that an Ohio State football player who committed suicide last year did not show any sign of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a brain disease that is degenerative and it’s usually found in athletes who have a repetitive brain trauma.

Kosta Karageorge, who was 22 at the time of his death, had been reported missing days before his dead body was found late November in Columbus, Ohio, with a gunshot wound to his head. Karageorge was a non-scholarship student who was the defensive lineman reserve in his first year as a football player in Ohio State’s football team.

In a statement that was issued out by the Franklin County Coroner’s office, the findings revealed that there was no evidence of a chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

"There is no evidence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy but there are nonspecific findings consistent with sub acute to remote prior concussive injury," said the office of the Franklin County Coroner in a statement.

According to the coroner, the cause of death of Kosta Karageorge, who also was a wrestler for Ohio State, was listed as suicide which resulted from a penetrating gunshot wound to Karageorge’s head.
Karageorge’s mother told the police that her son had suffered a number of concussions during his time as a football player and at times was confused on the happenings that were surrounding him.

The death of Kosta Karageorge raised the question of whether or not footblall players are usually treated properly by athletic trainers as well as physicians and whether or not they had noticed something different with Kosta Karageorge.
