WASHINGTON - Former NFL player Barrett Green 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.

Green 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 LSU Tiger and Redskins player Robert Royal, the player who hit Green, and former assistant coach Gregg Williams.
