Browns' star Thomas not worried about recent memory loss

Browns Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas isn't overreacting despite some recent spells with memory loss.

Earlier this summer, Thomas revealed he has experienced some moments of forgetfulness, but he's not convinced they are directly connected to a lifetime of football or 10 seasons playing in the NFL.

On the eve of Cleveland opening training camp, Thomas said he's closely monitoring recent brain studies, including one published this week by the American Medical Association. In the report, CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy), the neurocognitive disease believed to be linked to repeated head blows, was diagnosed in 110 of 111 brains of former NFL players.
