The widow of legendary NFL broadcaster and player Pat Summerall, has filed a concussion claim against the NFL, a report says.
Cheri Summerall filed the claim on behalf of her former NFL placekicker husband on Sept. 8th, saying it’s a show support for other former players who have raised issues of concussion-related injuries, the Star Telegram reports.
Attorney James Acho filed the claim for the widow claiming that Summerall had been diagnosed with football-related dementia by Dr. Kyle Womack at UT Southwestern.
“Pat died two years after the concussion lawsuit was filed and he totally supported it, and this is what he wanted,” Acho added.
Still, Cheri Summerall insisted that her husband “harbored no bitterness toward the NFL,” even as he supported the 2012 concussion lawsuit.
