NFL families share what it's like to live with CTE

Jim Hudson's wife came home one day and found him sitting on a couch, clutching a golf ball, with tears streaming down his face.

The former New York Jets defensive back, a star of the team's only Super Bowl championship, had played a lot of golf.
