Judge approves concussion settlement plan for thousands of NFL players

A federal judge has approved a preliminary settlement between the NFL and lawyers for the more than 4,500 retired players who sued the league, accusing it of hiding the dangers of concussions and repeated head hits. The judge’s consent, which was widely anticipated, means that all of the roughly 18,000 retired players and their beneficiaries can now vote on the deal.
