More Player Injury Suits Likely, Says NFLPA’s Smith

December 2, 2013

DeMaurice Smith, executive director of the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), says the National Football League likely hasn’t seen the end of lawsuits by players who have suffered injuries.

Smith, appearing Sunday on “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” said that despite the league’s recent $765 million settlement with former players’ lawsuits accusing the league of not telling players about links between repeated traumatic head impacts and long-term brain injuries, including Alzheimer’s disease, “reality will dictate that it’s never really the end of lawsuits.”
