Eddie George: I had depression after retiring from NFL

Thursday's health and safety news from the world of football:

  • The Chicago Tribune looked deeper at the decision by Chicago Bears safety Charles Tillman to give his Super Bowl tickets to a fallen soldier. Tillman offered his Super Bowl tickets on Twitter to a "deserving military family." Greg Doltz's name was offered by family friend Neeraj Singh, who said Doltz had lost his brother during a convoy attack.
  • The Missoulian in Montana reported on the Missoula High School journalists, who created a documentary about the origin of the state's "Steigers Act" that mandates school districts have a protocol for head injuries.
  • The Detroit Free Press reported that former running back Jahvid Best's lawsuit against the league is unique because his claim is that the NFL erred by making him available for the draft after two concussions at Cal-Berkeley.
