Report: Ex-LB Allen had in-game stroke
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Former Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Russell Allen will retire after suffering a concussion and a stroke in a game last December.
Allen told MMQB.si.com that he has a dead spot - no bigger than a dime - on his cerebellum. The cerebellum controls motor movement and coordination.
The Jaguars released Allen last week after his personal physician consulted with Jacksonville's medical staff before a scheduled physical.
