NFL | Former players sue over concussions

Thu, 22 Dec 2011 07:43:51 -0800

Former NFL players Jamal Lewis, Dorsey Levens, Fulton Kuykendall and Ryan Stewart say in a federal lawsuit that brain injuries have left them struggling with medical problems years after their playing days ended. The players filed the lawsuit against the National Football League and FNL Properties LLC this week in U.S. District Court in Atlanta. The players maintain the NFL knew as early as the 1920s of the potential for concussions to harm its players. They argue the league concealed the dangers from coaches, trainers, players and the public until June 2010, when it publicly acknowledged the health threats and warned players and teams.

Bob Brookover, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports the Philadelphia Eagles may soon be in the market for a running back due to the uncertain health status of RB Correll Buckhalter (knee), who is scheduled to have his ailing knee reexamined in the next few days.

Eagles | Levens Could Return

Mon, 06 Sep 2004 12:35:53 -0700

KFFL has learned the Philadelphia Eagles may bring RB Dorsey Levens, who was just released, back on roster following the first game of the regular season. If they had him on roster on opening day, his salary for the season would be guaranteed. Bringing him back later would allow them to pay him on a week-to-week basis and release him without a salary cap penalty. With injuries at linebacker, the Eagles were forced to keep seven on the active roster and that helped make Levens expendable entering Week 1.

Giants | Fassel Explains Decision To Move Joyce Up

Tue, 02 Sep 2003 11:51:40 -0700

Tara Sullivan, of the Bergen Record, reports New York Giants RB Delvin Joyce was the team's leading rusher in the Thursday, Aug. 28 pre-season finale against the Baltimore Ravens, gaining 60 yards on 17 carries and scoring a touchdown. He already has an important role because of his value as a return specialist and cover man on special teams, abilities neither Giants RB Ron Dayne nor Dorsey Levens possess. By proving to Giants head coach Jim Fassel he also can function on offense, Joyce made the coach's decision easier. "I just needed to look at who the next-most productive guy is and at that point in time, it doesn't matter where they were drafted, how long they've been with us, or what money they make," Fassel said. "It's the best guy who's going to play. You can't argue with his production. He's looked extremely good on the run, pass, pass protection, and return ability."

Giants | Levens, Dayne Both Likely To Make Team

Tara Sullivan, of the Bergen Record, reports New York Giants RB Dorsey Levens is RB Tiki Barber's primary backup for the Saturday, Aug. 23 pre-season game against the New York Jets. Giants RB Ron Dayne filled that role the first two games as Levens protected a sore hamstring. Though both players will be on the team, they are likely playing for the right to be active on game days. "I want to play Dorsey a lot more so he will get the next set (after Tiki)," Giants head coach Jim Fassel said. "I want to see him stay in there for a while."

"I'd like to have it a little bit more defined, but we'll be all right," coach Jim Fassel said. "We'll get a lot of looks at them these next couple of games. I'll play the first unit three quarters. But there will be some guys coming out, and one of them will be Tiki. I don't plan on playing him that full time, because I want to get a look at other running backs, and Tiki's in pretty good shape."
