This is a sad story.
Mike Webster’s football career brought him nine Pro Bowl appearances, four Super Bowl victories, a Hall of Fame induction, and irreversible brain damage, which in turn led to memory loss, depression and homelessness.
He was living in Pittsburgh with his high-school age son, who last week told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
My dad has some health problems no one knows about and that I don’t want to get into that much. But he has some brain injuries from football. I have to take care of my dad.
