The Dallas Cowboys made a roster move to get the team some help in the scoring department. Kick return specialist KeVontae Turpin arrived at camp after being contacted by the Cowboys.

Turpin led the USFL in all-purpose yards and had the only kick return for a touchdown in the league this past season.

According to a new study, researchers have found “conclusive evidence” that repetitive head impacts cause the degenerative brain disease CTE. Researchers from Harvard, UCLA, Michigan, and five other universities, along with the non-profit Concussion Legacy Foundation, participated in the study. They found that athletes involved in contact sports were at least 68 times more likely to develop chronic traumatic encephalopathy than those who didn’t play contact sports. As a result of their findings, the study authors call on government officials, sports leagues, and parents to implement CTE prevention and mitigation efforts.
