Jets' Jeremy Kerley pulling 8-year-old son out of football due to CTE concerns

As seen in USA Today: A New York Jets wide receiver told The New York Daily News that he is pulling his 8-year-old son out of football due to concerns over chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

Jeremy Kerley, a seven-year veteran in the NFL, told the newspaper in a story published Saturday that his son, Dae’shon, has complained of headaches after football practice and Kerley has decided to pull him out of tackle football.

"At the end of the day, a father makes a decision based on the health and well-being of his children,” Kerley told The New York Daily News. "That’s what he’s supposed to do. Just because I play football doesn’t mean that you should too. I’m looking out for his best interest.

"I’ve lived and learned this game is brutal. This game can hurt you. CTE can hurt you. If I can prevent him from that, that’s what I’m going to do."
