FILE - This Jan. 16, 1986 file photo shows Chicago Bears defensive end Richard Dent chases a loose ball during the NFL playoffs in Chicago. A group of retired NFL players says in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that the league, thirsty for profits, illegally supplied them with risky narcotics and other painkillers that numbed their injuries for games and led to medical complications down the road. The complaint names eight players, including three members of the Super Bowl champion 1985 Chicago Bears: Dent, offensive lineman Keith Van Horne, and quarterback Jim McMahon. Lawyers seek class-action status, and they say in the filing that more than 400 other former players have signed on to the lawsuit. (AP Photo, File)
