It's been nearly five years since Timothy Robinson last played football. He can barely speak and is confined to a wheel chair. His mom is now his primary caregiver.

"There are times I cry a lot and you know what else can I do?" Evelyn McGhee says.

During a game, the 18-year-old Alabama high school student suffered a traumatic brain injury after a simple tackle. His family later sued the helmet maker. The company settled the lawsuit for an undisclosed amount of money.
