2 min read


On December 9, 2021, Demaryius Thomas was found dead in his Georgia home. The family believed the former Denver Broncos wide receiver suffered a seizure while taking a shower. 

On Tuesday, a team of doctors at Boston University announced through The New York Times that Thomas’ brain revealed he suffered from Stage 2 CTE. CTE is a brain disease that stands for ‘chronic traumatic encephalopathy’ and it is believed to be caused by repeated blows to the head and is exacerbated by concussions. 

“He had two different conditions in parallel,” Dr. Ann McKee told the NYT.
