If no papers then no divorce. You will need to file for a guardianship for him with someone who will agree to take care of him. Doubtful your opinion will win over the wife's.
Any time a person suffers a traumatic brain injury the primary question becomes whether the person is still able to care for themselves and take care of their usual business affairs. If the person is unable to care for themselves then someone needs to file a petition to be named as the guardian of the injured person. If they are unable to take care of their business affairs then a petition for a conservator needs to be filed. If the injured person is married then their spouse becomes both their guardian and conservator without the need to file any legal papers since by marriage the spouse is vested with the duty to provide for their spouse. However if there is a family member that questions the adequacy of the care provided then that family member can file the appropriate petition(s) with the court.
