Chris Borland, who as a rookie inside linebacker last year led the 49ers in tackles, told ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” he is stepping away from the game at age 24 because of concerns about the long-term effects of head trauma. Borland reportedly told the 49ers on Friday about his decision.
“I just honestly want to do what’s best for my health,” Borland told the show. “From what I’ve researched and what I’ve experienced, I don’t think it’s worth the risk.”
