A fullback at Alabama before playing eight years in the NFL for New England and Philadelphia, Turner was 46 when he died in 2016. He had been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease, but after studying his brain researchers declared that it was actually CTE.
