The amended complaint filed Friday in Miami federal court contends Stabler and others were left out of the NFL’s $1 billion concussion settlement because of an April 2015 cutoff date. Stabler died in July 2015 from colon cancer, but the lawsuit says he also suffered from chronic brain damage.READ MORE: Firefighters Battling 2-3 Acre Wildfire In Lake County
