DETROIT -- Former Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best is suing the NFL and helmet maker Riddell after concussion problems helped cut short his career. Jake Gervase Jersey . 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." Johnny Mundt Jersey . Wheeler scored at 4:58 of overtime, with Scheifele getting an assist, and the Jets beat the slumping Colorado Avalanche 2-1 on Sunday night. Brandin Cooks Jersey . The 18-time champions, who havent won the title since 1990, moved two points behind Arsenal after the leaders were stunned 6-3 at Manchester City on Saturday. Defending champion Manchester United trails Arsenal by 10 points after winning 3-0 at Aston Villa to avoid a third successive league loss.Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Peyton Manning threw four touchdown passes, three to Demaryius Thomas and two during a fourth-quarter rally that lifted the Denver Broncos to a hard-earned 39-36 win over the Miami Dolphins in a key AFC clash. The Broncos trailed a gritty Dolphins team for most of the game and were down 28-17 after three quarters, then erupted for 22 consecutive points in the fourth to regain sole possession of first place in the AFC West and bounce back from last weeks startling 22-7 loss at St. Louis. Manning hit Thomas and Wes Welker for touchdowns during the stretch, while C.J. Anderson had a go-ahead touchdown run with 5:01 left to highlight a career-high 167-yard, 27-carry performance. You have to earn them all. We definitely earned a victory against a good football team today, said Manning. Thomas amassed 10 catches totaling 87 yards and Emmanuel Sanders snared nine Manning passes for 125 yards in the Broncos eighth straight home victory. Manning finished a sharp 28-of-35 for 257 yards for Denver (8-3). Ryan Tannehill threw for three touchdowns and ran for another to put Miami (6-5) in position for the upset before Manning engineered his 41st career fourth-quarter comeback. The young quarterback completed 26-of-36 throws for 228 yards with a costly late interception that helped seal the outcome. As a competitor, you dont like to see it, Tannehill said. We didnt score enough points in the second half. Jarvis Landry hauled in two of Tannehills scoring strikes and recorded seven catches for 50 yards. Tannehill put together an outstanding first half to lead the Dolphins to a 21-17 lead at the break, then hit Landry on a slant route from five yards out late in the third quarter to put Denver in an 11-point hole entering the final period. A Denver offense that was held scoreless in the third then get back on track, generating three consecutive touchdown drives to forge ahead for the first time on the day. Andersons 20-yard run on 4th-and-2 kept alive a series that ended with back- to-back catches from Thomas, the last a 5-yard score on a well-executed play fake from Manning with just over 14 minutes left. Manning and Sanders teamed up on the ensuing 2-point try to bring the Broncos within 28-25. Denvers defense followed by coming up with a stop before Manning went back to work. Three more completions to Sanders got the Broncos inside the Miami 20, and Anderson powered up the middle for a 10-yard touchdown run shortly afterward to put the reigning AFC champs ahead with 5:01 remaining. Landry had a Tannehill pass bounce off his hands on the subsequent possession, with Denvers T.J. Ward grabbing the deflection and racing 37 yards to the Dolphins eight. The pivotal turnover led to Welkers 2-yard touchdown grab that staked the Broncos to a 39-28 advantage with 3:13 to go. Aided by a unnecessary roughness penalty on Denvers Malik Jackson that tacked 15 yards onto Landrys chain-moving catch on 4th-and-2, the Dolphins inched closer with a 9-play, 84-yard drive capped by Tannehhills 1-yard, over-the- middle delivery to Landry with 1:34 left to play. Eric Weddle Jersey. When Lamar Miller was able to just get across on the 2-point attempt, Miami still had life after trimming the deficit to 39-36. Anderson corralled Caleb Sturgis onside kick, however, and the Broncos chewed off the remaining time to come away with the tough win. An action-packed first half featured plenty of explosive plays from both sides, with the Dolphins grabbing a quick lead by putting together a 7-play, 80-yard opening possession that Daniel Thomas capped with a 3-yard touchdown run just over 3 1/2 minutes in. Denver countered with a methodical 12-play series culminating in Brandon McManus 38-yard field goal, but Miami found the end zone again following a trade of punts to increase its advantage. After getting the ball back in Broncos territory after a Denver three-and- out, the Dolphins moved inside the opposing 5-yard line on the strength of two strong runs from Miller and Mike Wallaces 10-yard catch. Tannehill capped the drive with a well-executed 1-yard run on a bootleg fake to give the Dolphins a 14-3 lead early in the second quarter. Manning answered by engineering an 11-play, 77-yard sequence in which he converted three third-down situations with completions -- two to Sanders and the last a 5-yard fingertip grab by Demaryius Thomas in the end zone on a crossing route. Tannehill brought Miami right back down the field, however, making good on all six of his throws on a 10-play, 87-yard jaunt he concluded with a perfectly thrown ball that Wallace hauled in with a diving attempt for a 21-10 Dolphins edge. Wallaces 10-yard score came with 1:54 left in the half, more than enough time for Manning to get the Broncos back on the board. The five-time league MVP hit a wide-open Sanders for a 35-yard gain on 3rd-and-20, then connected again with Demaryius Thomas for a 14-yard touchdown with 12 seconds on the clock to cut Denvers deficit to 21-17. The Broncos couldnt make any progress in the third quarter, however. McManus hit the upright on a 33-yard field goal attempt on the initial drive of the second half, and a fumbled punt by Isaiah Burse that the Dolphins recovered at the Denver 12 led to Landrys first touchdown catch.
