On June 7th, more than 2,000 former NFL players filed a lawsuit, the biggest sports lawsuit ever, against the league for concealing information linking football injuries to long-term brain damage. These accusations state that the league intentionally misled the players about the consequences and long-term effects of concussions and brain injuries.
A 2000 study of 1,090 former NFL players found that at least 60% had suffered at least one concussion throughout their careers. And according to the Centers for Disease control and Prevention, concussions account for one in every ten sports injuries. Sounds like it’s just part of the game, right?
