The latest concussion-related lawsuit against the NFL features five-time Pro Bowl running back Ricky Watters and four-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman Joe Jacoby as plaintiffs.
Jacoby says he “sustained repeated traumatic impacts to his head and/or concussions on multiple occasions,” the Washington Times reports.
A member of three Super Bowl-winning Redskins teams, Jacoby is a four-time Pro Bowler, two-time first-team All-Pro and member of the 1980s All-Decade team. He’s also a member of the Redskins’ Ring of Fame, and this lawsuit makes him the fifth member of the Redskins’ Ring of Fame to sue the league over concussions. The others are Len Hauss, Billy Kilmer, Dexter Manley and Art Monk.
Watters played for the 49ers, Eagles and Seahawks and was a key player on the Super Bowl XXIX-winning team in San Francisco.
