Former NFL players filing appeals in concussion lawsuit
PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Former NFL players who object to terms of the potential $1 billion concussion settlement have filed appeals that are likely to delay payouts to thousands of retirees until next year.
About a dozen appeals on behalf of as many as 90 former players were expected to be filed by Monday's deadline.
Some challenge the exclusion of future cases of CTE, while others are concerned the settlement awards players with neurocognitive symptoms, such as Alzheimer's disease and dementia, but not those with behavioral and mood disorders.
