On the heels of Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s “Big Hits, Broken Dreams” special on concussions in high school athletes Sunday night on CNN and with more than 300 former NFL players filing lawsuits versus the NFL over concussion safety and recurring issues associated with concussions in multiple states the Sports Kings reached out to retired Super Bowl Champion RB Jamal Lewis to discuss concussion safety, symptoms, and the long-term effects of concussions.

Plaintiffs in the lawsuit include former stars Ottis Anderson, Mark Duper, Tony Dorsett, Jim McMahon, Lem Barney, Jamal Lewis, and others.

The lawsuits accuse the NFL of negligence and misconduct in how it responded to player complaints of health problems after suffering concussions.

The league denies any wrongdoing and says safety has always been a top priority.
