With backlash in recent years for CTE, many of medical professionals are searching for a treatment, and they may have finally found one. Doctor William Korinek of Astrocyte Pharmaceuticals recently spoke on a new “concussion pill’ that could be coming out in 2025. The pill is meant directly for football players, specifically ones in the NFL.

This pill, now in it’s animal testing phase, could speed up recovery and and ease long term brain damage. While scepticism is heavy, hopes are also high in the football community.
