Eric Dickerson Sues NFL Over Concussions, League Now Faces 80 Lawsuits

The NFL's increasing emphasis on player safety and on treating concussions with great gravity is coming as the league faces an unprecedented degree of legal pressure from former players. Paul Anderson, the proprietor of the NFL Concussion Litigation blog, reports that the latest big name to join concussion litigation is former Rams star and Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson.

Dickerson went on to a broadcast career with ESPN and ABC after his playing days, working on Monday Night Football broadcasts.

There are now 80 filed lawsuits against the NFL related to concussions, according to Anderson, and almost 2,300 named plaintiffs in them.
