HOUSTON (AP)

Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson is the latest former player to sue the National Football League and seek compensation for head injuries.

Dickerson is the lead plaintiff among 15 men named in the suit filed Monday in federal court in Houston. Other plaintiffs include former Minnesota Vikings player John Randle and the estate of Ernie Stautner, a longtime Dallas assistant coach and former player in Pittsburgh.

More than 1,000 former NFL players are suing the league, saying not enough was done to inform them about concussion dangers and not enough is done to take care of them today. The league has said any allegation it intentionally misled players is meritless.

The lawsuit was first reported by the Beaumont Enterprise (http://bit.ly/L28wro).
