Stabler Is Latest Big Name to Join NFL Concussion Lawsuits

by Anthony Caruso on August 16, 2012

Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler became the latest former NFL star to file a lawsuit against the league for head injuries he sustained during his career. There are now a total of 124 concussion lawsuits, representing a staggering 3,236 former NFL players.

Stabler, like his fellow plaintiffs, maintains that the NFL failed to warn players about the long-term effects of suffering multiple concussions. The players also allege that the league actively attempted to hide its own knowledge of the risks of repeated head injuries.
