Brain trauma is a big topic of discussion in the world of football right now, with CTE creating headlines all the time. People don't really discuss mental health, though. 

It has now been revealed Los Angeles Rams star Tre Mason has been admitted to hospital in South Florida recently, with the running back needing a mental health evaluation.

According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report, via Peter Burke of Local 10 News, Mason was found at his mother's home after going AWOL.

Mason failed to report for the Rams first training camp as a Los Angeles franchise and head coach Jeff Fisher revealed that he hadn't seen or heard from his second-string running back in months.

Fisher then went on to say that he and the team were very concerned with Mason's well-being, which is a worrying phrase.

Right now, we're more concerned with Tre Mason's well-being than we are his football career," Fisher said at the first day of training camp.

"We're going to continue to try to reach him to see where he's at."

Well, the Rams now don't have to worry as Mason is still at his mother's house in Florida, under the watching eye of Mrs. Mason. It was actually she who called the authorities to report her son's erratic behaviour, which led to the mental health evaluation.

According to the aforementioned report, Mason told deputies that "he was going to call the White House and we were all going to lose our jobs."

He also said that "police were responsible for teaching Al-Qeada (sic) how to fly planes."

Mason was selected by the Rams in the third round of the 2014 Draft out of Auburn. He has rushed for 972 yards and five touchdowns in two seasons with the Rams. There is no word if he will be continuing his football career.
