There's a big story on ESPN.com today about Andrew Martin and concussions in wrestling.  The Sports Legacy Institute (which Christopher Nowinski is affiliated with) examined samples of Martin's brain and "excessive amounts" of tau proteins, which accumulate in the brains of those with head trauma.  Excellent article with comments from Dawn Marie and the Institute's doctors.
