Joe Jacoby, Bruce Smith Join Concussion Lawsuits Against NFL
Two more prominent former Redskins have been named as part of a whole passel of lawsuits against the NFL alleging that the league concealed the long-term effects of concussions from its players. Nathan Fenno of The Washington Times reports that former Washington Redskins lineman Joe Jacoby is among 220 ex-players, spread over seven lawsuits, to sue the NFL over concussions in recent days. Filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Jacoby's suit said he "sustained repeated traumatic impacts to his head and/or concussions on multiple occasions." Late last week, former Redskins and Bills defensive lineman Bruce Smith also filed suit in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania: "As a result of the head trauma suffered during his playing career, Bruce Smith suffers from symptoms associated with multiple traumatic brain injury and CTE."
