Craig Steltz, former LSU football player, sues NFL for brain injuries

Craig Steltz, a former Rummel and LSU football player, is suing the NFL with a claim of brain injuries suffered while with the Chicago Bears.

Steltz played six seasons with the Bears, who released him in August 2014. He missed the cutoff for the NFL's $1 billion settlement for those who retired on or before July 7, 2014.

Steltz claimed in the court filing to suffer "from symptoms of brain injury caused by the repetitive, traumatic sub-concussive and/or concussive head impacts" sustained during NFL games and/or practices.

The court filing included several pages listing how the NFL allegedly ignored and denied a link to football-related head trauma and the neurological symptoms suffered by many former players. The filing said the league first publicly acknowledged the link on March 16, 2016.

The filing lists Craig and his wife, Lindsay, as plaintiffs.

Steltz came to LSU as a first-team all-state player out of Rummel, where he was the state's top safety prospect. He also played running back and returned kicks play he played through two nagging injuries as a high school senior.
