Dan Marino Suing the NFL Over Concussions



According to federal court records, Hall of Fame member and former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino has filed a lawsuit against the NFL. In the suit he claims the league obscured information about football-related brain injuries, misleading players.

More from L.A. Times:

The 18-page complaint alleges the NFL concealed information about football-related brain injuries and misled players, claims that are similar to those made in more than 300 related lawsuits. The NFL has repeatedly denied such claims.

No specific symptoms are alleged for Marino, selected to nine Pro Bowl games when he played from 1983 to 1999. Boilerplate language is used in Marino’s short-form complaint. One is submitted for each plaintiff.

“On information and belief, the Plaintiff … sustained repetitive, traumatic sub-concussive and/or concussive head impacts during NFL games and/or practices,” the short-form complaint said.

Marino could not be reached for comment but as of now we know his suit seeks medical monitoring and an undisclosed amount of money.
