Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino, along with 14 other former players, filed a lawsuit against the NFL over concussions last week.

“On information and belief, the Plaintiff…sustained repetitive, traumatic sub-concussive and/or concussive head impacts during NFL games and/or practices,” read Marino’s short-form complaint, via the Los Angeles Times’ Nathan Fenno.

The Hall of Fame quarterback is seeking compensation in the form of “medical monitoring and unspecified financial recovery,” per Fenno. Of course, this development has implications far beyond that.

he NFL is no stranger to being sued in connection with concussions. There is currently a much larger ongoing lawsuit, as over 4,500 former NFL players are suing the league, claiming that the dangers of concussions were covered up. The players had seemingly reached a $765 million settlement, but judge Anita Brody rejected that sum in January amid concerns that it wasn’t sufficient.

Sol Weiss, a co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs in that case, is also serving as one of Marino’s attorneys.
