Report: Deceased Ohio State Football Player's Brain Will Be Examined

According to the Franklin County (Ohio) coroner, a neuropathologist will examine the brain of deceased Ohio State football player Kosta Karageorge "for signs of traumatic brain injury," ESPN reports. Dr. Anahi Ortiz told ESPN that brain examinations aren't typically done in autopsies, but is in this case because of Karageorge's "reported history of concussions." Karageorge, whose body was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound yesterday, disappeared on Wednesday after sending his mother a text message that read "I am sorry if I am an embarrassment but these concussions have my head all fucked up.''
