Chat with Jane Leavy

Auto Update: Off

Welcome to SportsNation! On Friday, Grantland's Jane Leavy will stop by to take questions on her recent story about Dr. Ann McKee, a neuropathologist leading the charge in research about brain trauma in athletes.

McKee spends much of her time documenting the rise of concussions in the NFL which has drawn both praise and criticism. As Leavy states in her story, ''War-painted denizens of the upper deck may view [McKee] as The Woman Trying To Destroy Football. In fact, she is The Woman Trying To Save Football From Itself.''

Leavy, a devout Green Bay Packers fan, has written two New York Times bestsellers - The Last Boy and Sandy Koufax: A Lefty's Legacy - and a comic novel entitled Squeeze Play, which Entertainment Weekly called ''the best novel ever written about baseball.''

Send your questions now and join Leavy on Friday at 1 p.m. ET.
