HOUSTON (AP) — The NFL has been sued by 28 former players in federal court in Houston, accused of covering a known link between concussions and permanent brain injuries.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday on behalf NFL Hall of Famers Randy White, Bob Lilly and Rayfield Wright and other former Cowboys and NFL stars are among the plaintiffs

They say the NFL failed to act effectively to protect its players from brain injuries and the dementia that sometimes resulted later in life.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says any allegations that the league willfully misled its players about the head-injury dangers they faced is without merit. Similar lawsuits have been filed across the country.
