Ten former NFL players, including ex-Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis, have been charged with defrauding the league’s health program of millions of dollars.
The players are among a group of 12 facing charges in the Eastern District of Kentucky, the Department of Justice announced Thursday. They are accused of filing more than $3.9 million in fraudulent claims, of which more than $3.4 million were paid from June 2017 to December 2018.
Along with the charges that were announced, the Department of Justice said it will seek charges against two others, including former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Horn.
