PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A third lawsuit has been filed in Philadelphia by retired NFL players over brain injuries allegedly caused by on-field concussions, a week before U.S. judges decide whether to consolidate similar cases filed around the country.

At least eight similar lawsuits have been filed in New York, New Jersey, Georgia and Florida.

The lawsuits claim the National Football League hid evidence linking concussions to permanent brain injuries. Two-time Super Bowl champion Jim McMahon and hundreds of other players have signed on. They say they have symptoms ranging from memory loss to depression to degenerative brain disease.

The suit filed Wednesday involves seven players, including former Philadelphia Eagles Ron Solt, Joe Panos and Rich Miano.

The NFL hopes to consolidate the lawsuits in Philadelphia, where the first suit was filed last year.
