Ex-Chiefs Suing Team Over Head Injuries
Five former members of the Kansas City Chiefs filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the NFL team, but not the league, for damages as a result of head injuries suffered while playing.
Alexander Cooper, Leonard Griffin, Christopher Martin, Joseph Phillips and Kevin Porter were members of the Chiefs in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
The lawsuit claims each player is suffering from "post-concussion syndrome and latent brain disease" and has displayed symptoms of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a brain disease linked to concussions that can only be discovered in autopsies.
