A former NFL player is suing the Washington Redskins, saying his career-ending knee injury resulted from a bounty program in which the team's coaches encouraged players to intentionally injure opponents.
Barrett Green played linebacker for the Detroit Lions and New York Giants between 2000 and 2005. He says a career-ending knee injury during a game on Dec. 5, 2004 was the result of an ''unusual, outrageous and an obvious cheap shot.''
The lawsuit also names former Redskins player Robert Royal, the player who hit Green, and former assistant coach Gregg Williams.
Green initially filed his lawsuit in May in state court in Maryland. It has since been removed to federal court in Greenbelt, Md.
The Redskins declined to comment on the case.
