Aired on 05/07/2016 | CC tv-pg
After an eye-opening chat with former teammate, Chris Hale, about how their bodies are holding up in retirement, Rodney finally makes an MRI appointment to scan his brain for symptoms related to CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy). Holly has been begging him for months to go get checked out with all the recent news surrounding the NFL and concussions.

Finally, Rodney's results are in and the neuroradiologist breaks the news to the Peetes: Rodney has several abnormal lesions on his brain that could be a sign of CTE. Holly is shaken by the news, but resolves to stay strong for her husband. Rodney does not regret pursuing his passion for football, and, going forward, plans to do everything he can to remain healthy for his family as long as possible.
