At one point, new concussion lawsuits were coming in at the rate of roughly one per week. Now, it seems like at least one new suit is being filed every day.
The Associated Press (which for some reason hasn’t been noticing many of the recent filings) reports that former Falcons running back Jamal Anderson and former Packers quarterback Don Majkowski have filed suit, along with more than 100 other former players.
That puts the total number of former players who have filed above 1,600. Surely, more will be coming, especially in the wake of Junior Seau’s death.
Anderson told CNN on Thursday that he fully expects to “have some issues down the line.” Without directly acknowledging that he is one of the former players who have sued, Anderson claimed that information was hidden from players by the league.
