A federal judge on Monday granted preliminary approval to a landmark deal that would compensate thousands of former NFL players for concussion-related claims. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Anita Brody in Philadelphia came about two weeks after the NFL agreed to remove a $675 million cap on damages. Brody had previously questioned whether that would be enough money to pay all claims. "A class action settlement that offers prompt relief is superior to the likely alternative — years of expensive, difficult, and uncertain litigation, with no assurance of recovery, while retired players physical and mental conditions continue to deteriorate," Brody wrote. More than 4,500 former players have filed suit, some accusing the league of fraud for its handling of concussions. They include former Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Dorsett and Super Bowl-winning Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon, who suffers from dementia. The settlement is designed to last at least 65 years and give $1 million or more to retirees who develop Lou Gehrigs disease and other profound neurological problems. "This is an extraordinary settlement for retired NFL players and their families — from those who suffer with neuro-cognitive illnesses today, to those who are currently healthy but fear they may develop symptoms decades into the future," plaintiffs attorneys Sol Weiss and Christopher Seeger said in a statement. NFL senior vice-president Anastasia Danias said in a statement that the league was "grateful to Judge Brody for her guidance and her thoughtful analysis of the issues as reflected in the comprehensive opinion she issued today." The original settlement included $675 million for compensatory claims for players with neurological symptoms, $75 million for baseline testing and $10 million for medical research and education. The NFL would also pay an additional $112 million to the players lawyers, for a total payout of more than $870 million. The revised settlement eliminates the cap on overall damage claims but retains a payout formula for individual retirees that considers their age and illness. A young retiree with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrigs disease, would receive $5 million, a 50-year-old with Alzheimers disease would get $1.6 million and an 80-year-old with early dementia would get $25,000. Even with the cap removed, both sides said they believe the NFL will spend no more than about $675 million on damage claims by ex-players. Critics of the deal have said the league, with annual revenues approaching $10 billion, was getting off lightly. They could raise objections at a fairness hearing scheduled for Nov. 19, and ultimately opt out of the settlement. However, they would then face the risk of a protracted legal fight, and would have to prove any injuries were caused by NFL concussions and not any suffered in youth or college sports. The proposed NFL settlement had originally barred claimants from seeking a separate settlement against the NCAA, but that clause has been removed. A separate lawsuit is pending against the NCAA in Illinois. "I think the judge has forced them to make improvements," said University of Richmond law professor Carl Tobias, who teaches product liability law. "I think she always felt she had an obligation to the players, to be sure they were getting a fair deal ... given the treatment to date." The settlement would be capped at $4 million on behalf of players diagnosed with traumatic brain injury after their deaths, such as San Diego star Junior Seau or Pro Bowler Dave Duerson. Both of their families, through lawyers, have expressed concerns about the settlement. Duerson died at age 50. A family lawyer has called their projected $2.2 million award to the family "not adequate." Giants Madison Bumgarner Jersey .

Green.Green left in the fourth quarter with concussion-like symptoms after absorbing a punishing hit from Steelers safety Mike Mitchell. He fumbled just before Mitchell drilled him into Heinz Field turf. Pittsburghs Antwon Blake recovered Cincinnatis third turnover of the day and moments later Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was racing downfield on a 63-yard catch-and-run that clinched Pittsburghs first division title since 2010.We had a rough day, Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis said. Its key to take care of the football. We didnt do a very good job of it.The Bengals (10-5-1) is the AFCs No. 5 seed and will play at AFC South champion Indianapolis (11-5) next Sunday as they search for their first playoff win in nearly a quarter century. The Colts drummed Cincinnati 27-0 on Oct. 19. The Bengals responded by going 7-3 over their final 10 games, but two of the losses came to the rival Steelers. Pittsburgh (11-5) is the No. 3 seed and will host Baltimore (10-6) on Saturday night.Cincinnati had trouble keeping Brown in check. The Pro Bowler had 212 all-purpose yards, including a dazzling 71-yard punt return for a score in the first quarter.The victory came at a potentially high cost for Pittsburgh. Running back LeVeon Bell left in the third quarter with a hyperextended right knee following a collision with Cincinnati safety Reggie Nelson.Nelson hit Bell low at the end of a 19-yard reception and the second-year back — voted the clubs Most Valuable Player by his teammates last week — lay on the field for several minutes. He gingerly jogged to the sideline before being taken to the locker room to chants of MVP! MVP! Nelson and Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin exchanged words during the postgame handshake, though both declined to get innto details about the conversation.ddddddddddddHe was talking about some he-said, she-said type of deal, Tomlin said. I dont know what he was talking about.Pittsburgh survived without one of its catalysts thanks to the opportune play of cornerbacks Blake and Brice McCain, who picked off Andy Dalton twice. Dalton completed 27 of 38 passes for 244 yards but both picks were poor overthrows to Green that cut short promising drives.You have to be better, Dalton said. You cant turn the ball over.Still, a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Gresham with 11:14 remaining pulled the Bengals within 20-17 and Cincinnati had possession and a chance when it fell apart. Blake swiped the ball out of Greens hands and chased it down while Green was decked by Mitchell on a legal but decidedly violent collision.Cincinnatis defence forced the Steelers into a third-and-8 on the ensuing drive before Brown shook loose. Ben Roethlisberger, battling an illness that forced him to miss warmups, found Brown along the sideline. Brown split two Cincinnati defenders then darted to his team-record 13th receiving touchdown. The grab also gave him 129 receptions of the season, the second-highest total in NFL history. Roethlisberger finished 24 of 38 for 317 yards and two touchdowns to go with an interception.Green, who torched the Steelers for a career-high 224 yards three weeks ago, was held to eight receptions for 82 yards before leaving. Jeremy Hill ran for 100 yards on 23 carries for Cincinnati.The Bengals have become contenders under Lewis and are headed to the post-season for a fourth straight season for the first time in franchise history. Yet they are still looking for their first post-season victory since Boomer Esiason and Sam Wyche beat Houston 41-14 in the Wild Card on Jan. 6, 1991. Each of the last three seasons have ended with thuds and now Cincinnati must travel to a place where it managed little while getting drummed by Andrew Luck and the Colts.Im looking forward to the opportunity to give it back to them, Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap said. They obviously put it on us pretty well earlier in the season.___Online: AP NFL website: and Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
