    Schottenheimer battling early-onset Alzheimer's

    When the 1986 Cleveland Browns reconvene this weekend for a 30-year reunion of the last Brownsteam to win 12 games, their beloved coach will be by their side.

    Marty Schottenheimer, the long-tenured coach who led the Browns to four consecutive playoff appearances from 1985 to 1988, plans to be in attendance in Cleveland this weekend, and that’s a victory in and of itself.

    Schottenheimer, 73, was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s about five years ago, according to ESPN’s Tony Grossi, and is reportedly expected to begin a trial of a new drug that could slow down the debilitating effects of the disease.
