NFL agrees to eliminate cap on player payments in concussion lawsuit
Grand Forks North Dakota 375 2nd Ave. N. 58203

NEW YORK - The National Football League agreed to eliminate the cap on monetary awards available to players who were part of a major concussion lawsuit in the United States against the league, the NFL said on Wednesday.

The lawsuit was settled between the league and thousands of former players last August at $765 million, but a U.S. judge hesitated to sign off on the deal because she worried it would not be enough money to pay all the affected players.
