Portis is the lead plaintiff in an 83-player lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Other plaintiffs include former Pro Bowl quarterback quarterback Daunte Culpepper and 1,000-yard rusher Carnell "Cadillac" Williams.
Gabe Rivera was maybe the greatest defensive lineman to play at Texas Tech.
They dragged coolers and lawn chairs across parched grass, wielded Sharpies, wore burgundy and gold beads and anything else that carried the colors: jerseys, high-tops, towels, baseball caps, fedoras, socks and one pair of gold skinny jeans.
It was just one play, a single snap in a Washington Redskins camp full of them, but for Santana Moss it was oh so symbolic. On a throw to the left flat Thursday morning, just a few minutes into the first workout, Robert Griffin III led Moss a bit too far, and Santana was forced to make a tumbling catch, an effort that sent his visor flying.
Former Washington Redskins lineman Joe Jacoby is among 220 ex-players, spread over seven lawsuits, to sue the NFL over concussions in recent days.
Former Washington Redskins defensive end Dexter Manley, dubbed the "Secretary of Defense" for the vicious hits he delivered, has joined the torrent of ex-players suing the NFL over concussions sustained during their careers.
Smokers and pro football players have something in common: They engage in risky behavior that can be potentially harmful to their health over time.
Over the past 11 months, 2,397 former players have have sued the NFL over concussions, according to a review by The Washington Times of the 90 lawsuits filed through June 14. The plaintiffs, including 19 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, combined to play 168,020 NFL games.
So Art Monk, former Washington Redskins player, is the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit against the National Football League and a helmet manufacturer for difficulties resulting from concussions during his football career ("Hall of Fame receiver Art Monk latest to sue NFL," Web, Thursday). This is getting ridiculous.
Art Monk, the Hall of Fame wide receiver who played 14 seasons for the Washington Redskins, sued the NFL and helmet manufacturer Riddell, Inc. over "short term memory loss, headaches and speech difficulties" from multiple concussions sustained during his career.
More than 60 former NFL players have filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles, joining hundreds of others who claim pro football didn't properly protect its players from concussions.
The numbers that defined the Washington Redskins' offense last week were ugly.
It's all coming apart for the Washington Redskins. You can feel it with every incomplete pass, every stuffed run, every missed tackle, every senseless penalty. Mike Shanahan's grand plan, whatever it was, is looking more and more like the jottings of the Nutty Professor. Maybe it's time to start calling him Sherman instead of Shanny — and calling the Redskins the Klumps.
Joe Gibbs' stomach was rumbling when he emerged from the Washington Redskins coaches' meeting Saturday night, Oct. 3, 1987. He was, by his own admission, "kind of snarly anyway" because it was the night before a game against the division rival St. Louis Cardinals. On that occasion, however, Gibbs was even more anxious than usual.
The Redskins rolled the dice again Thursday night in the first round of the NFL draft. The Washington Times' columnist Dan Daly runs down their greatest hits, misses and other notable first-rounders (*Hall of Famer):
He says that if he had a chance to do it over again, he would not have played football.
In a 1994 Newsday story, Monk admitted to suffering three concussions up to that point in his 16-year career, which ended in 1995.
