PHILADELPHIA - Add 1992 Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien to the ever-growing list of former players suing the NFL because, they say, more should have been done to inform them about concussions and more can be done now to help them.
The former Washington Redskins quarterback is among more than 120 players who are plaintiffs in a recent addition to the dozens of lawsuits pending in federal court in Philadelphia.
Rypien says he has dealt with depression and has problems remembering simple things, including conversations with his girlfriend _ so they tape-record themselves.
Rypien says he had two concussions diagnosed during 11 seasons in the NFL, including a championship with the Redskins. But he also says there were more than 20 hits that left him feeling "not in touch with my body."
