Jeremy Newberry: They knew… I wasn't going to get on the field without those drugs

A group of some 600 retired players are suing the NFL, alleging the league illegally and routinely supplied them with powerful and addictive drugs. They say the drugs were meant to mask pain, conceal injuries and keep them on the field. Jeremy Newberry is one of the players suing the NFL. He told Anderson he took pills and injections before nearly every game. Today he is suffering from kidney failure, which he attributes to the painkillers. But he says he was only warned that they would cause more bruising.
