Bears’ Legend Sayers Suffering From Dementia

It could be another example of the high cost of playing professional football. Family members say legendary Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers has been suffering from dementia for the past four years.

The family believes his condition is the result of blows to the head that he sustained during his NFL career.

Sayers is now said to require round-the-clock supervision and is barely able to communicate, although he is said to still be physically strong.
