It's the same condition that killed several athletes, including Hank Gathers. It's also the condition that USC doctors found in linebacker Frankie Telfort in 2009 that prevented him from ever playing at USC. Somewhat similarly to the Hawks signing Scott to a contract anyway, USC honored Frankie's scholarship through 2013 so that he could still go to school.http://miamiherald.typepad.com/hssports ... lfort.html
I'm no doctor, so maybe there's a chance Scott can actually play. I'd be surprised, however.
By the way, I believe Frankie will be a coaching intern at the Hawks camp this year. After he had to quit playing, Pete made him a student coach and he continued that role after Pete left.
