    DETROIT -- Former Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best is suing the NFL and helmet maker Riddell after concussion problems helped cut short his career. [b]Derron Smith Jersey[/b] . The lawsuit was filed in Wayne County Circuit Court on Tuesday. It alleges the league has been aware of evidence of mild traumatic brain injuries and the risk for its players for years, but "deliberately ignored and actively concealed" the information. It also accuses Riddell of making defective helmets and failing to inform the players of the long-term effects of concussions. "The NFL, like the sport of boxing, was aware of the health risks associated with repetitive blows producing sub-concussive and concussive results and the fact that some members of the NFL players population were at significant risk of developing long-term brain damage and cognitive decline as a result," the lawsuit reads. "Despite its knowledge and controlling role in governing player conduct on and off the field, the NFL turned a blind eye to the risk and failed to warn and/or impose safety regulations governing this health and safety problem." A message was left Wednesday seeking comment from the NFL. Riddell spokeswoman Erin Griffin declined comment Wednesday night. The Detroit Free Press was the first to report on the lawsuit. Bests suit comes just days before the Denver Broncos take on the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Sunday. It also comes on the heels of a ruling by a federal judge that calls into question the viability of a proposed $765 million settlement of NFL concussion claims. U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody denied preliminary approval of the plan because shes worried the money for 20,000 retired players could run out sooner than expected. She also raised concerns two weeks ago that anyone who gets concussion damages from the NFL would be barred from suing the NCAA or other amateur football leagues. Best was selected by the Lions in the first round of the 2010 draft and accounted for 1,000-plus yards and six touchdowns as a rookie. But he was limited to six games during the 2011 season after what he said was the third concussion of his football career. He was cut by Detroit in July. Best also had a scary fall when he was a college player at California that knocked him out and sent him to the hospital with a concussion and sore back. Best, who turns 25 on Thursday, is seeking compensatory and punitive damages from the NFL and Riddell, to go along with economic and non-economic damages. "Unfortunately, with these types of injuries, as has been documented, the long-term effects of the injuries to the brain may not manifest themselves for a number of years," Bret Schnitzer, Bests attorney, said in an email to The Associated Press. "Jahvid obviously had some manifestation of concussion syndrome, which is well documented in the media. But in terms of the full extent of the injury to the brain, as we can see from other players and from the science, that cant always be determined in a 25-year-old." Schnitzer declined to make Best available for an interview. "He was disabled from playing football due to the concussions. Thats all Im really going to indicate in terms of his condition at this time," Schnitzer said in an email. "Itll develop through the litigation." [b]Paul Krause Jersey[/b] . The rest of the team was already on the field stretching before batting practice while Puig was getting dressed in the clubhouse. He had been slated to start in right field for the afternoon game against the San Francisco Giants, who beat the Dodgers 8-4. [b]Kris Boyd Jersey[/b] . Last year, Islanders forward Colin Mcdonald released a "Do It For Colin" campaign to promote his teammate and friend John Tavares for the EA sports honour:The most popular sports voting video ever has to go to Chris Bosh who showcased his comedic abilities in his effort to get fans to vote him into the 2008 All Star Game:You can vote for TJ and other star players for the NHL 15 cover vote here.Classic winner Covert Love has been retired after suffering a strained ligament. The Azamour filly gave trainer Hugo Palmer his first Classic success when winning the Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh last year, and added a further Group One victory in the Prix de lOpera at Longchamp.Also second in the Yorkshire Oaks, she had been due to make her four-year-old debut at Royal Ascot in the Prince of Waless Stakes. Palmer told Press Association Sport: Very sadly we have had to retire Covert Love, which is a great shame.She has a strained ligament, which is the sort of thing with a gelding, whose only value is on the racecourse, in a years time thered be a chance to race again, but obviously with a Classic-winning filly its a different ball game.Its obviously disappointing for her owners, who were looking forward to Royal Ascot and the season beyond, for Glen Magee, who rides her at home, and for all the team.But we are proud of what she achieved last year, she is so game and so giving. As one of her owners said, theres a line from Casablanca - well always have Paris.He added: She gave us some special days last year and we will miss her hugely, but she owes us absolutely nothing. She doesnt know theres anything wrong with her, shes only very fractionally lame at the trot, but we would be unduly risking her.It came to light this morning with a swollen joint and is a stark reminder of why the big days aare so special. [b]Aviante Collins Jersey[/b]. he Curragh was absolutely magical - one of the great privileges of my profession is to train a nice horse for nice people. Not everyone in the syndicate knew each other but became close and we had a wonderful journey.We went to the Curragh having won a Listed race, hoping to be in the first three, but she won by three lengths. She was then just nudged off at York, before Paris, which is a day Ill never forget.The saddest thing is she is a big, rangy filly and what she achieved at three was fairly remarkable - she looked and seemed so much better at four.Racing UK is offering all new customers a free one month trial!
