The National Football League (NFL) has recently settled a lawsuit brought on by over 4500 former players and their families for brain injuries those players suffered on the playing field.  The NFL agreed to pay $765 million which will go towards medical expenses, compensation, research and court costs.  To put into perspective the number of former players involved in this lawsuit, this year the entire league has only 1696 active players.

However, this may not be the end of brain injury-related lawsuits for the NFL.  Four more players have recently sued the NFL and helmet maker Riddell for brain injuries suffered on the field.  Riddell was not part of the aforementioned settlement.
