DALLAS (AP) – What began last summer as a couple of cases with a handful of plaintiffs is growing week by week, and soon perhaps more than 1,000 former football players will be suing the NFL in federal court in Philadelphia.

They say the league didn’t do enough to inform players about the dangers of head injuries and protect them from concussions in the past, and it isn’t doing enough to care for them today.

Attorney Craig Mintick says he plans to add about 70 more players in a filing Friday, including Golden Richards, who scored a touchdown in the Dallas Cowboys’ 1978 Super Bowl victory; and A.J. Duhe, the 1977 AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Ex-players believe there is strength and symbolism in the continually rising numbers of plaintiffs.
