The NFL’s concussion lawsuit will go on for some time, and some very familiar names have just been added to it.
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 who say playing in the league did irepairable damage to their brains.
This comes on the heels of Portis always claiming he knew what he was getting himself into when he started playing football.
