CTE stands for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. This is when you have several brain injuries, and it kills the nerves in the brain. This happens most with people who play sports for a long time, like Jason Kelce. He made a comment about a racehorse and received backlash. Someone commented how he may have CTE and he agreed.

“I mean I can virtually guarantee that I have CTE, all the research would suggest I have some degree of it, I think it is entirely reasonable to assume I have some degree of that pathology. I understand, I don’t take offense at all. what I’m saying is that it’s completely reasonable to think I have CTE,”

This would not be shocking as Jason played professional football for 13 years and started playing the game way before then. He did apologize for his racehorse comment due to the backlash he was receiving.
