Last week’s filing of a 2,000-player “master complaint” hardly represented the beginning of the process — and if definitely wasn’t the end.
Via the folks at NFLConcussionLitigation.com, at least three new lawsuits have since been filed.
In Atlanta, a group of former players led by quarterback Billy Kilmer have joined the throng. The case also includes former return specialist Allen Rossum and Anthony Dorsett, Jr., the son of fellow concussion plaintiff Tony Dorsett.
Two separate suits were filed in Houston on Friday, with former Cowboys quarterback/punter Danny White and former Bills linebacker Darryl Talley (pictured) among 27 plaintiffs.
A press release issued by the firm filing the Houston cases incorrectly identifies one of the plaintiffs as “former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Kevin Williams.” Williams has neither left the team nor sued; the plaintiff is actually former defensive back Kevin Williams.
The total plaintiffs now exceed 2,400. At some point, the number of former players who haven’t sued will be smaller than those who have.
