Junior Seau and the NFL's Concussion Epidemic

The suicide of former Chargers linebacker Junior Seau last week was tragic in its own right. But it also shed more light on an issue that is becoming increasingly unavoidable: the damage wrought by concussions frequently sustained by NFL players. In this appearance on The Ed Show, Nation sports editor Dave Zirin explains how the NFL has been sacrificing its players’ health and how players are starting to push back.
