has a Harvard degree, but he opted for a career in the squared circle. That decision has come back to haunt the former WWE superstar, as he still suffers the effects of the head injuries he sustained during his career.

Nowinski, who serves as president on the board of directors for the Sports Legacy Institute (SLI), authored a book that was released in 2006 called Head Games: Football's Concussion Crisis. Nowinski dropped by WEEI's Dennis and Callahan on Thursday to discuss some of what he's discovered when it comes to brain injuries, and to talk about his own experiences.

Check out the video above to hear from Nowinski.
