BU study links football to development of cognitive difficulties

A preliminary study at Boston University shows a link between playing football in youth, high school, and college, and developing cognitive difficulties as an adult.

The study says the hits could be linked to depression and behavioral dysfunction.

Doctors say more research is needed before deciding whether football is actually safe or not.
