Knee Pain
Many NFL players have long-term effects caused by injuries while on the field.

Arthritis or more accurately known as, knee osteoarthritis can develop at a much younger age especially with trauma, and sports injury. A sports history buff can only look at the career of NFL professional football quarterback Joe Namath to see this. Namath had his first knee surgery in college, followed by multiple more while playing in the NFL.  He won the 1969 Super Bowl yet his career was significantly shortened by his injuries and knee surgeries. After retirement, Namath had both knees replaced.
