The latest lawsuit against the NFL over concussions includes former Pro Bowlers Clinton Portis and Daunte Culpepper as plaintiffs.
The Washington Times reports that Portis is the lead plaintiff in an 83-player lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Portis recently said he played through concussions “all the time” during his nine-year career with Denver and Washington.
Culpepper, who played for the Vikings, Dolphins, Raiders and Lions, and former NFL running back Cadillac Williams are among the 82 co-plaintiffs.
The NFL is now facing dozens of lawsuits, with a total of more than 4,500 plaintiffs, from former players who say their lives have been adversely affected by brain injuries suffered on the field.
