The federal lawsuit filed this week claims the NFL had medical evidence of the toll head injuries take but "produced industry-funded, biased, and falsified research." It seeks unspecified damages for Morton, 70.

Another 39 players, including former Pro Bowler Koren Robinson, filed a federal lawsuit against the NFL and helmet maker Riddell over concussions this week, seeking $75,000 each and a medical monitoring program paid for by the NFL.

The NFL reached a $765 million settlement with former players earlier this year.
