NFL Hall of Famer Art Monk is joining the national debate surrounding the long-term effects of players who suffer concussions while playing. Monk is suing the league and helmet maker Riddell, reports NFL Concussion Litigation.
Monk, who spent 14 seasons with the Redskins, says he is impaired by the
injuries he suffered during his football career, citing short term
memory loss, headaches and speech difficulty.
Monk's lawsuit accuses the NFL of knowing and concealing the long-term
effects of concussions while "engaging in a long-running course of
negligent and fraudulent conduct."
