This is ridiculous

When the NFL first disclosed that a bounty program had been implemented and maintained by former Saints defensive coordinator Greg Williams, it was widely assumed that multiple lawsuits would be filed in connection with the program that gave cash incentives to players who inflicted injury on opponents.
While some of the concussion lawsuits had cited the bounty program, Williams had not directly been sued by any player who allegedly was injured by a bounty.
Via Tulane sports law professor Gabe Feldman, former NFL linebacker Barrett Green has sued the Redskins, Williams, and tight end Robert Royal for a knee injury Green suffered in 2004, when Green played for the Giants.
Per Feldman, the lawsuit alleges that “Redskins coaches directed their players to disregard criminal and civil laws, as well as NFL rules, to intentionally injure opponents.” Green also contends that he was “suspicious” Royal may have specifically targeted Green.
