NFL faces more suits for head injuries

Former quarterback Craig Morton, who led both the Cowboys and

Broncos to the Super Bowl in an 18-season career, is among former

players suing the NFL for not doing enough the prevent head

injuries.

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.
