NFL | Players to contribute to concussion study

The Associated Press reports Baltimore Ravens C Matt Birk, Seattle Seahawks LB Lofa Tatupu and Arizona Cardinals WR Sean Morey have agreed to donate their brains after death to a Boston University medical school program that studies sports brain injuries. The players' brains and spinal cord tissue will go to the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy so researchers can better understand the effects of concussions. More than 150 former athletes, including 40 retired NFL players, already are in the program's brain donation registry.
