    The National Football League is about to face one of its greatest challenges. On Christmas Day 2015, Columbia Pictures will release Concussion, a film starring Will Smith. Smith plays Nigerian doctor Bennet Omalu, the pathologist who first identified chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in the brains of deceased football players.

As a result, the players suffer from mental and emotional deterioration, severe amnesia, dementia and depression after they have left the game.
