Former NFL quarterback Jim McMahon is suffering from memory loss due to injuries suffered on the football field, according to the Chicago Tribune.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "My memory's pretty much gone. There are a lot of times when I walk into a room and forget why I walked in there," McMahon has reportedly said. "I'm going through some studies right now and I am going to do a brain scan. It's unfortunate what the game does to you."
McMahon said that when he was hit hard back then, he would "tape an aspirin" to his helmet and go back in.
The 51-year-old won the Super Bowl with the Chicago Bears in 1986. He also played for the Chargers, Eagles, Vikings, Packers and Cardinals.
