NFLPA Sued Over Concussion Issue, Says Lawsuit Has "No Merit"
Published July 18, 2014
The thrust of the complaint is that the union worked together with the NFL to downplay the risks of playing football. A federal judge recently preliminarily agreed to a settlement of concussion claims against the league. Christian Ballard, who played with the Vikings from '11-12, and Gregory Westbrooks, who played from '75-81, filed this lawsuit. The complaint alleges there are thousands of other potential plaintiffs.
