Concussion lawsuits donít take a Fourth of July break

The NFL has slowed down (relatively speaking) over the last week, but the burgeoning NFL concussion lawsuit industry hasnít.
According to the folks at NFLConcussionLitigation.com (actually, itís just one ďfolk,Ē and heís now studying for the bar exam so there will be no updates until the end of the month), another 170 or so former players have joined the parade this week, pushing the total number of players suing the league north of 2,600.
The names include Bubby Brister, Bill Maas, Christian Okoye (who perhaps should have specifically named Steve Atwater as a defendant), soon-to-be-Hall of Famer Dermontti Dawson, and Stephen Davis (who perhaps should have specifically named Michael Westbrook as a defendant).
Soon, it will indeed be easier to simply name the former players who havenít sued the league for concussions.
