Former Eagles player files concussion suit against NFL

    Another former Philadelphia Eagles player has filed a suit against the NFL, accusing the league of misleading players about the effects of concussions.

    Running Back Dorsey Levens and three other former NFL players want a jury trial in the case, NBC10 reports, and allege that the NFL has known for decades that concussions can potentially have lasting effects on players. All four say they have lingering medical issues.

    In August, seven other players filed a similar suit in Philadelphia.
