HOUSTON (AP) – A former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman has sued the NFL, alleging concussions have affected his short-term memory and caused migraine headaches and other health problems.

Michael Myers’ lawsuit was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Houston. It accuses the NFL of negligence, fraud and conspiracy in its handling of head injuries.

The Cowboys drafted Myers was drafted by the Cowboys in 1998 and played six seasons for Dallas before finishing a 10-year career with the Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals.

An NFL spokesman said Tuesday the league hadn’t seen Myers’ suit, but added that any allegation it intentionally sought to mislead players has “no merit.”

The complaint is the latest in a series of suits by former NFL players alleging they’ve been impaired by concussions.
