Heart Test Possible
Some good may come from Gaines Adams' tragic death. The NFL's Cardiovascular Committee has begun discussing the possibility of performing an echocardiogram on all players, reports ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen. Adams died from an enlarged heart that NFLPA Medical Director Dr. Thomas Mayer said could have been detected with an echocardiogram. Adams had no prior family history of heart related conditions and no other tests ever indicated anything was wrong before his death.
