FILE - In this Nov. 17, 2002, file photo, Miami Dolphins' Patrick Surtain intercepts a pass intended for Baltimore Ravens' Chester Taylor, rear, in the third quarter of an NFL football game in Miami. Surtain is one of nearly two dozen former NFL players that are suing the league over severe and permanent brain damage they say is linked to concussions suffered on the job. The complaint, filed on Thursday, Dec. 22, 2011, follows a similar one in Atlanta this week. (AP Photo/Gary I. Rothstein, File)
