According to researchers, NFL lineman from Pennsylvania Adrian Robinson Jr., who committed suicide at the age of 25 suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy. His diagnosis was confirmed Wednesday through officials at the NFL brain bank at Boston University.

According to Ben Andreozzi, the player’s family lawyer, Robinson received numerous concussions during two seasons in the league. Till this moment the family has not filed a suit over his death in Philadelphia.

Robinson played for Temple University before becoming a pro football player. In 2012 he appeared in 12 games for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and later in 2013, played six games for the Denver Broncos and two for the San Diego Chargers. The player signed with the Canadian Football League’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a free agent April 27.

The scientific community has been trying to proof the link between concussions, CTE and suicide. There have been congressional hearings about concerns related to repeated concussions and new rules on when students and professional athletes should be allowed to return to the field.

According to Chris Nowinski of the Boston University-affiliated Concussion Legacy Foundation, 88 of 92 NFL players whose brains have been researched, tested positive for CTE, also 33 other players of college or high school football.

Will Smith’s upcoming biographical sports and medical dramatic thriller film ( Concussion) is about brain injuries related to football.
